Genes in Space is a national science competition where teachers and students design authentic DNA research proposals. No actual experimentation is needed for the contest.  Winners have their experiment proposals developed and then  launched to the International Space Station! In this workshop you will discover how this competition encourages students to collaborate as they address scientific questions critical for the future of space exploration, engage in problem solving through DNA technology in space, and enhance their overall STEM literacy. You will also learn about upcoming workshops where you can develop skills to bring real-world DNA analysis into your curriculum using the miniPCR DNA Discovery System™, an innovative toolkit that makes biotechnology accessible to your classroom, outer space, and beyond available free to area teachers through the Salk Institute Education Outreach programs.
