Here’s a tasty blend of physics, chemistry and biology, within molecular kitchen. Our devices enable you to create synthetic caviar, but also try the oldest processes known to biotechnology, used for producing cheese and ginger ale. If someone’s less of an eater, and more of a spiritual type, he can try growing flowers with the use of aeroponics, without solid ground or watering. Magic? Nope, it’s just the Copernicus "Biotechnology" box. Pure science.
The "Biotechnology" workshops were held in April and May 2012 for biology teachers from middle schools and highschools, all a part of the „GENesis” project. There were 199 teachers participating in all 11 lectures. The theme was a broad discipline called biotechnology, to which the foundation is biology, but also, to an extent, physics and chemistry.
The goal was to inspire the teachers to make more, new and interesting educational lessons. Our designers made the box contain all materials meeded to counduct seven unusual and entertaining experiments. We triend to make this box become not only a source for recreating the aforementioned experiments, but more as a basis, the contents and features of which a teacher could feel free to expand.
Producing milk, synthetic caviar and detecting enzymes in washing powders –these are but a few experiments the teachers conducted. At the course, the participants could enhance and update their knowledge, swap expierience, or propose modifications to introduced experiments. We listened carefully to any suggestions about the use and topic of workshops or the reviews of the box contents. Finally, each participant recieved their own box, to use at school lessons.
