Engaging high school students in authentic research experiences may sound far-fetched, but we have developed practical tools that can be integrated into the science curriculum to promote student research. We will chronicle the process by sharing how you take novice researchers (your students) through a research project from start to finish. Lesson plans with strategies that systematically address the process of integrating scientific research into the classroom setting and multiple forums for dissemination of student projects will be shared.

Everyone has heard of proteins and DNA, but how easy is it to analyze a sample? Come explore the application of advanced biotechnology that can be implemented in the high school classroom during a class period. Using specific tools, students can run a DNA or protein gel electrophoresis unit and obtain results for analysis. These biotechniques have applications to the National and State Science Standards in Science and Technology.
