Inspiration day for teachers – Workshop at DanStem
On February 2, 2017 DanStem hosted the workshop ‘How to make an organ?’ to inspire high school teachers in their efforts to teach stem cell and developmental biology.
The workshop was run as part of the Inspiration day offered by the Faculties of Science and Health at the University of Copenhagen (http://inspirationsdag.ku.dk).
DanStem scientists Mette Jørgensen, Svend Dahl-Jensen and Simone Wenkel prepared hands-on activities that evolved around key processes in embryonic development. All participants had the opportunity to dissect the early embryos from fertilized chicken eggs and played DanStem’s newly developed board game about stem cell differentiation.
