A variety of events took place at Finland’s Life Science Education Centre, LUMA, including workshops, themed articles and an on-line competition. Interactive workshops were organized every evening in the Chemistry Lab Gadolin and in the LUMARTS laboratory to introduce teachers to practical biotechnology experiments.
Workshop topics included building a functional electrophoresis machinery from kitchenware, biochemical separation techniques for milk and microbiology approaches to enzyme production. An on-line competition was launched with a multiple-choice question on biotechnology appearing daily. In addition, biotechnologythemed articles were published in national webmagazine LUMA Sanomat to support teachers with up-to-date information and to provide source material for classroom use.
