11-12: Improve Student Engagement using Pop-Culture in your Life Science Class

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Use popular science to engage high school students in your classroom. See how popular TV and movies can be connected to real-world discoveries and issues. This inquiry-based activity makes for a great skills lab by teaching pipetting, gel electrophoresis, and making solutions with stunning results. Turn this into a complete science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) activity by allowing your students to build their own horizontal electrophoresis box to investigate the science and engineering behind a workhorse in the biotechnology lab. Learn how to use a fun hands-on lab to increase student involvement and understanding.
