    Overview

    Biology 101 is a modular bioscience education program for students in grades 6-12. This unique collection of courses covers the same topics as a traditional school biology program, but taught hands-on by professional scientists using an exciting real-world curriculum.

    Biology 101 is a modular bioscience education program for students in grades 6-12. This unique collection of courses covers the same topics as a traditional school biology program, but taught hands-on by professional scientists using an exciting real-world curriculum.

    Starting with the fundamental principles of life, Biology 101 builds gradually from basic to advanced topics through a pipeline of independent modules. Students can select from a catalogue of courses to meet to their unique needs and interests, following completion of the requisite units. Each module is comprised of five, two-hour classes, taught using real-life research models in a state-of-the-art biotech research facility.

    Participants learn core concepts and essential lab skills during engaging lessons that involve lecture-discussions, multi-media presentations, hands-on classes and independent experimentation. Biology 101 is designed to support a range of levels from first-time bioscience learners to advanced placement students. Our novel real-world approach offers specialized training that can’t be gained in school, to prepare students for higher education and future research internships.

    We are currently offering 2 modules with plans to develop more in 2021:

    Module 1: Biological Molecules and Laboratory Techniques

    Module 2: Cells and Cellular Structure

     

    Module 1:

    Biological Molecules and Laboratory Techniques focuses on the structure and function of the key molecules that make make up living cells and the assays that are used to detect them. Participants learn foundational laboratory techniques, essential for all bioscience education programs.

    Class 1: Biomolecules and bioassays

    Class 2: Carbohydrates

    Class 3: Lipids

    Class 4: DNA

    Class 5: Proteins

    Skills learned: Laboratory safety, units of measure, pipetting, basic reagent preparation, bioassays, biochemical testing, scientific research method, experimental planning, data analysis, DNA purification, agarose gel electrophoresis.

     

    Module 2:

    Cells and Cellular Structure focuses on the functional components of cells and the essential technique of viewing cells and subcellular structures by microscopy.

    Class 1: Intro to Cells and Microscopy

    Class 2: Membrane and Cytoskeleton

    Class 3: Mitochondria

    Class 4: Nucleus and ER/Golgi

    Class 5: Cellular Vesicles Skills learned: Laboratory safety, units of measure, pipetting, basic reagent preparation, bioassays, scientific research method, experimental planning, data analysis, immunocytochemistry.
