Organizers and Presenters:
Hey high school biology teachers — got math? Join us for a workshop focused on getting comfortable with the quantitative side of biology.
The program will feature hands-on experience with inquiry activities that use real data, tools for graphing, modeling, and much more. The University of Tennessee's popular Biology in a Box will supply some of the activities integrating math and science. Participants will work collaboratively to add or enrich the quantitative aspects of their favorite biology lab.
The tutorial/workshop will be led by the BioQUEST Curriculum Consortium, a 25-year biology education reform community that focuses on helping faculty develop and implement innovative curricula.
The application process is closed. Successful applicants will be notified after the deadline. If needed, financial support for travel and lodging is available for attendees. Most meals are included.

A goal of NIMBioS is to enhance the cadre of researchers capable of interdisciplinary efforts across mathematics and biology. As part of this goal, NIMBioS is committed to promoting diversity in all its activities. Diversity is considered in all its aspects, social and scientific, including gender, ethnicity, scientific field, career stage, geography and type of home institution. Questions regarding diversity issues should be directed to Dr. Ernest Brothers, the NIMBioS Associate Director for Diversity Enhancement (firstname.lastname@example.org).
