Developing a Quantitative PCR and Colorimetry Instrument for Laboratory Skills Training

Project Summary

The development of analytical skills has become essential for modern life. They play a key role in understanding data and making informed decisions on topics such as human health and environmental protection.  Furthermore, these analytical skills are crucial for success in many careers, including those in science.  Students at the high school and undergraduate levels can develop these skills through a comprehensive STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education.

To bring these in-demand quantitative analysis skills into teaching laboratories, Edvotek is creating a comprehensive series of equipment, experiments, and resources centering around topics in biology, environmental science, and biotechnology.  The hands-on experiments using mathematics, statistics, and modeling to analyze the results of experiments in Environmental Science, Biotechnology, Medical Diagnostics, and more.
