Abstract: The Genetic Science Learning Center is an outreach education program located in the midst of bioscience research at the University of Utah. Our mission is to help people understand how genetics affects their lives and society. To achieve this mission, we present education offerings for various audiences, including: 1. This website, which delivers interactive and print-based resources, free of charge, to Internet users worldwide. The website has two main components: a.) Information and activities: These address standards for science education, and are accessible to all users from the homepage b.) Teacher Resources and Lesson Plans: These are accessible from the top right of any page. They include PDF-based Print-and-Go classroom activities and teacher guides for all materials. 2. Professional development programs that update K-12 teachers' expertise in bioscience topics. See our list of upcoming courses and workshops, accessible through the Resources and Lesson Plans section of this site. 3. Public education programs that highlight topics of current interest and research underway at the University of Utah. Our educational resources provide accurate and unbiased information about topics in genetics and bioscience. Designed for non-research audiences, our materials are interactive and jargon-free, target multiple learning styles, and often convey concepts through visual elements. Our newest materials are being developed with our Exploragraphic design methodology. Some topics in genetics and bioscience research are controversial. The Learning Center does not take sides in politically or ethically charged topics. Rather, our goal is to provide comprehensive information that promotes a lively discussion of these topics, so that individuals can arrive at their own informed decisions.
