Teaching Resources - Bay Backpack

“Indicators” give us information about the quality of Bay waters. If you have ever wondered how muddy waters impact underwater plants in the Chesapeake, or how steamy summer temperatures affect water quality, explore the interactive investigations provided on this NOAA website. These short activities use real-time and stored data from the CBIBS to help you answer these and other water quality questions. Carroll County Department of Recreation and Parks.

High School Student Laboratory Field Trips

Lab "field trips" on DNA restriction and transformation supported the rapid implementation of these experiments in AP Biology classes on Long Island. The DNALC has also helped teachers implement PCR-based experiments to examine human DNA polymorphisms. DNALC instructors stress an interactive approach linking the process of discovery to learning and strive to offer cutting-edge experiences inspired by techniques and tools currently in use by research scientists.

We are pleased to offer an new laboratory, Forensic DNA Profiling, as well as an updated version of Human DNA Fingerprinting. These labs offer students the unprecedented opportunity to analyze a sample of their own DNA with equipment similar to that used by forensic scientists. Forensic DNA Profiling* Lab time: three and 3/4 hours.
