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, 22nd March 2018, on the topic of Chemistry of Enzymes.
If you have wished for an assay in which students can not only see the effect of enzymes upon substrates but also calculate the rate of change, we have formulated several protocols from which you can choose. Today we concentrate on amylase (clarase) and catalase, with hands-on experience from a student’s point of view. Chemistry students will be able to calculate rates of change, and to discuss at a molecular level what is happening to starch and to hydrogen peroxide under the action of enzymes
This workshop is suitable for teachers and technicians.
