Immersion Science Program for teachers

Posted by Fox Chase Cancer Center on May 28, 2018

Exciting news! We are officially launching the application for the 2018 Summer Teacher-Immersion Science Program workshop. This 1-week workshop is funded by a grant awarded by the Society for Developmental Biology and run by the Immersion Science Program at Fox Chase Cancer Center.

Selected participants will receive a stipend and materials for use in the classroom. The ISP will work with the participants through the 2018-2018 academic year as the protocols/techniques are transferred into the classrooms.

We will be selecting 8 to 10 participants for this workshop.

The application link is below (Google Form) and the cycle will close June 11th.

Please share this link with science teachers that you feel would contribute to the ISP and benefit from this workshop.

Focus group: High school; Biology (any level)

Others also considered: Health-related, STEM, and middle school life-science

Project focus: Dietary effects on development in fruit flies. We will use various techniques, including observation of wing vein development, to screen supplements against genes in cancer signalling pathways. Cell division/apoptosis, transduction pathways, and cancer will be discussed.

Practical: On day 5, participants will engage a mock-class (of former ISP graduates) in a hands-on activity to gain insight on how to bring the project into their classrooms.

If you have any questions, please contact the Immersion Science Office:
