Please note: PVNet is A Nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization All program fees shown are subsidized by PVNet philanthropy and offered to students at below actual cost. The field of biotechnology uses biological systems to produce useful products or perform specialized tasks. Labs will be conducted virtually using PhET and Labster. Both are simulators that have been adopted by a few high schools and many more colleges. Basic pipetting, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), gene editing (CRISPR), and ELISA are just a few of the techniques included. The curriculum will be supplemented with topics from AP Biology and current events like the Covid-19 epidemic. Should the current situation change, hands-on experiences may be possible in the design and fabrication of custom scientific devices, bioamplifiers, and marine science. Biotechnology I will provide a solid foundation for any biology class students may take in the future."
