CBM 2020 Summer Workshops Cancelled!

It is with much regret that we are announcing the cancellation of all summer 2020 workshops.

These cancellations include:

  • The Science and Ethics of Genome Editing, Cohort 3, June 22-26
  • 3D Printing for the Bioscience Classroom, June 29-July1
  • The Science and Ethics of Genome Editing, Cohort 2, in Boston, July 6-9
  • Modeling the Molecular World, July 27-31

Our intention is to offer these same workshops in the summer of 2021. The exact dates will change a little. We will set those dates and publish them on our web site later this summer.

For those of you who have already paid course fees and housing costs for, we will be happy to roll these payments forward to next summer’s course. But of course, if you would rather have us refund these payments, we will be happy to do so. Please let us know if you want the refund.

We have been agonizing over this decision for several weeks. In the end, we feel this is the right decision. But in the midst of all the uncertainty that everyone is experiencing right now, we hope this announcement will allow you to focus on what is most important… keeping yourself and those around you safe.

We look forward to working with all of you next summer. And in the meantime, watch the CBM website and our Facebook page. In lieu of running summer courses, we plan to post a variety of videos and molecular stories on these pages. Maybe all of this craziness will finally get us to create these digital resources that we have been promising you for some time now. In the next day or so, you will see an interesting video addressing everyone’s current topic. . . the cornona virus. Stay tuned and be well.

Stay tuned and be well.

3D Printing for the Bioscience Classroom

Course Description

Advances in 3D Printing technology have made these amazing machines affordable for high school technology/science/engineering departments. But how do you get started? What can they do? How do they work? And what types of educational activities benefit the most from access to 3D printing technology?

All these questions and more will be covered in this intensive three day workshop, designed to get your students building unique and personalized physical models of proteins and other molecular structures!

The CBM has long been a leader in using 3D printing technology to create meaningful educational experiences for science and STEM education. With this new workshop, the ability to create customized physical models of molecular structures becomes directly available to you. . . and, more importantly, to your students!

Application Information

A $450 workshop fee covers the cost of:

For an additional fee, we will arrange for on-campus housing in our Grohmann Tower Apartments. Double occupancy rate is $200 for four evenings; Single occupancy rate is $350 for four evenings.

A very limited number of scholarships are available for those with identified need. Applications for scholarships are available on request. Contact Tim Herman at herman@msoe.edu for more information.

A Community of Professional Educators

Teachers in this program will be encouraged to become active participants in a professional community of educators - committed to documenting the impact of their classroom innovations on student learning, and to sharing the results of that education research with others.

Teachers at Drug, Drug Targets and You
Course materials will be explicitly related to current Next Gen Science Standards, with a special emphasis on modeling - both as an authentic practice of science and as an important facilitator of student learning.
