"The TQB Instructors have constructed a well-organized and valuable program
for secondary biology educators. Having completed several summer courses for
teachers, I can enthusiastically say this has been one of the best. I
have learned a huge amount about modern genetics and look forward to implementing
many of the activities in my biology classroom"
the opportunity to learn about and apply cutting-edge investigative
techniques that we can bring back to our students has been
"The TQB Program was
able to strengthen not only my content knowledge but my practical
knowledge and how to apply it to the curriculum. Lab experiences
were invaluable for the experience and practice that it gave."

program rocks. Up-to-date information that even an experienced
teacher of Biology needs to take."

"The TQB Program is
great! We learned how to isolate DNA, run gel electrophoresis,
PCR and even sequenced our own DNA! The course gives you
more information than you will use in your classroom but
that is the point! The labs we performed are kits that can
be ordered or use materials that are easy to find. I highly
recommend the TQB Program!!!"
experience in the TQB program was a very beneficial and exciting
class. The instructors were very knowledgeable and willing
to help in any way possible. The lab work we did was new
and up to date, and our work load was reasonable for a graduate
class. Besides, who can turn down a graduate course that
you get the credits for and also get paid?"
is an excellent program for biology teachers. Not only did
this program further my knowledge in biology concepts, but
I was able to learn new lab techniques. Science is always changing;
this is a great way to keep up with advancments in science."
program is rigorous but the instructors are very helpful
and available for questions. Learning current scientific
techniques and how to integrate them into a high school curriculum
