In our first five years, we have accomplished the following:

  • Published our first paper, a design case written with two of the teachers. This paper is available for download here: BIOINFORMATICS IN THE K-8 CLASSROOM: DESIGNING INNOVATIVE ACTIVITIES FOR TEACHER IMPLEMENTATION

  • Implemented 5 intensive summer workshops from 2014-2018 with approximately 60 elementary and middle school teachers (known as Classroom Teaching Fellows- CTFs)

  • Developed innovative bioinformatics-based classroom activities with the CTFs.

  • Provided classroom kits for CTFs to use in their classrooms

  • Supported one CTF to attend a regional bioinformatics conference

  • Provided technical support and assistance as our CTFs implemented classroom activities
