At the Center for BioMolecular Modeling (CBM), teachers come first. We work closely with talented science educators from across the US to create innovative instructional materials that make the molecular world real for students. We host a collection of professional development courses that introduce teachers to these materials and provide them with the experience necessary to confidently use them in their classroom.
The CBM offers a collection of exciting summer on-campus workshops where teachers interact directly with our full collection of resources.
