Event description

Description

SPARQ-ed Cell and Molecular Biology Experiences are 1- or 2-day programs aimed at providing classes of junior or senior secondary students an opportunity to explore concepts and use techniques not normally covered in a school science laboratory. Each one covers an aspect of cell and molecular biology, using experimental procedures which form the core of modern biomedical research. While the same topics and techniques are offered to all year levels, delivery of the subject matter will be tailored to suit the needs of individual classes and schools.

The programs are conducted in the SPARQ-ed teaching laboratory, a PC2 rated facility located on the ground floor of the Translational Research Institute in Woolloongabba, Brisbane. Each one is developed and supervised by the SPARQ-ed teacher-scientists in conjunction with researchers from the University of Queensland’s Diamantina Institute.
