The internship aims to help teams of teachers and students learn biological physics lab techniques, by participating in current research conducted in the laboratory of Dr. Hanna Salman. Each team will be formed of one high school science teacher and one high school student. At the end of the internship, the teams are expected to evaluate their project and determine which aspects of it could possibly be added to the high school’s science curriculum, and assist in sharing this work with their schools and other high schools in the Pittsburgh area.
Prior knowledge of biological physics is NOT expected, however priority will be given to those with some background in physics or biology.
