The Biology Summer Institute is designed for biology teachers to learn about ongoing research in the Indiana University Department of Biology and to work with us to design activities that can be used in their classrooms. Members of participating Biology laboratories will provide a general introduction to their research programs and will work with teachers to develop innovative exercises and experiments to enrich their students’ conceptual understanding of the life science curriculum. The Department of Biology will provide teachers with the supplies necessary to conduct the designed activities in their classrooms, and members of participating labs will assist teachers when they institute the activities co-designed by teachers and members of the Biology labs.
