CBST Summer Biophotonics Research Academy Professional Development series (Level I – 3 days, Level II – 5 days) they are given copies of our basic biophotonics activities and are automatically eligible to check out specialized equipment. This equipment includes items such as: pulse oxymeters, lasers, light sources, basic USB microscopes, PASCO GLX data loggers, and Ocean Optics Fiber-based spectrophotometers. Most often the teachers report back using 3 to 4 activities which they modify to fit on-site needs. The activities have been incorporated as 1-2 week units in a course, as a “Science Friday” set of activities during a semester, and as the last 2-3 weeks of a school year once the Advanced Placement (AP) exams have been completed (for advanced placement biology usually mid May).
In collaboration with the Edward Teller Educational Center at LLNL, CBST sponsors Research Academies for 7-14 teachers who are interested in learning more about Biophotonics and how to bring this exciting field to their students.
