Urban Barcode Project
Educator Training

Our next Urban Barcode Project (UBP) teacher training will be offered from

Monday, July 29 to Thursday, August 1, 2024
9:30 a.m.–2 p.m. EDT)
at DNA Learning Center NYC at City Tech

Participants will be introduced to the DNA barcoding laboratory investigation and bioinformatics infrastructure. Teachers are eligible to attend the training workshop if they teach a high school science class or a science research program in the New York metropolitan area. Teachers who complete this workshop are invited to organize student teams and propose UBP projects.

Once trained, teachers register on the barcoding portal on this site to enter student research teams in grades 9 to 12. Teams will develop an original research proposal and receive feedback from UBP staff. Teams with accepted proposals will receive supplies, equipment, and scientific support needed to conduct experiments. Results will be shared at an annual symposium.
