Teach the Teachers 2007 Workshops

We are planning three "Teach the Teachers" Workshops in 2007, one in North America, one in China, and one in Europe.

New instructors are required to attend one of the workshops. Experienced instructors -- ie. those that have participated in iGEM in previous years -- are also encouraged to attend. The workshop will describe the philosophical foundations of the iGEM program, describe the requirements and expectations for participation in 2007, and introduce the resources available to the participating teams. The workshop also provides an opportunity to meet the iGEM organizers, learn about the laboratory operations that support the competition, socialize with other iGEM team leaders, and gather information and materials for a successful year.

Your Role in the Teachers Workshop

During the workshop, you will be expected to use your laptop to edit parts, enter information on the wiki and perform other modern internet tasks. You will also be expected to give a 10 minute presentation of your iGEM team please plan to cover the following topics and more if you wish:

  • What are your expectations and hopes for iGEM 2007?
  • What has happened at your school to get ready for iGEM 2007?
  • Please describe the team - the students, the instructors, and the facilitys available.
  • How are you supporting your team?

Directions to the Workshop

By Taxi - Taxi fare from the airport is about $5-$6. During non-rush hour, the taxi ride will take about 30 minutes. During rush hour, the ride could take 50 minutes.

By Bus - If your flights are going to arrive in Beijing airport, a bus driven directly from Beijing airport to Tianjin is suitable. The cost of the bus is around $7. Then take a taxi to TJU, which will costs less than $2.
