We are pleased to announce that we will be presenting a series of in-depth training sessions at our new premises in Knoxfield. We expect this will be a great opportunity for teachers and technicians to get a solid background in the topics being presented. The emphasis will be on explaining how our novel education resources can be used, and showing you the best way to prepare and integrate them with your science teaching activities.
Each session will run from 1:30pm to 4:00pm with refreshments, notes and product samples provided to all participants. A nominal charge of $28.00 payable by credit card, per person (payable at the time of booking) applies to cover catering and consumables. If your school does not have the flexibility of a credit card, please contact us to make an alternate arrangement. For these bookings the cost will be slightly higher, $38.00, to accommodate the extra processing work involved with a non-credit card transaction.
Our next training session will be held on Thursday, 27th July 2017, on the topic of Studying enzymes in theory and practice.
Enzymes are proteins that act as catalysts. They speed up biochemical reactions to make them useful for metabolism in living organisms. This workshop will combine a study of the theoretical aspects of enzyme function with some practical examples of enzyme experiments. The theoretical basis of enzyme action will be explored using the Enzymes In Action kit from 3D Molecular Designs. This kit uses manipulative models to demonstrate the specific nature of enzyme-substrate reactions, the way they lower activation energy to speed reactions up, and the role of inhibitors. The practical experiments will be based on a selection from the large range of enzymes that is available from Southern Biological for school lab activities.
This workshop is suitable for teachers and technicians.
