First Genes in Space workshop in Colorado

Wings Over the Rockies recently hosted a Genes in Space workshop for educators at their Exploration of Flight museum near Denver, Colorado. In a building filled with aerospace history (and really cool airplanes) Colorado educators brainstormed ways to bring Genes in Space into their classrooms. They also got a chance to get hands-on with the same DNA analysis equipment used on the International Space Station to participate in a simulation where they identified the source of food borne illness aboard the ISS.

We want to thank the educators who participated for such a fun day and our generous host at Wings over the Rockies, April Lanotte, for all the work she put into making sure the workshop was a success. This workshop was sponsored by miniPCR and Boeing. Check out photos below:
