How to Make a Jabberjay: A Discussion on Real-Life Genetic Engineering Technologies

Thursday, November 7, 2013 @ 6:30 PM-8:00 PM

Junior Academy of Science

This event is FULL as of Tuesday, November 5, 2013. We are accepting WAIT LIST registrants below.

Featured Speaker: Kevin Gamber, Ph.D., Director, Marketing and Business Development, SAGE Labs

What would you create if you had the tools for genetic engineering? In this interactive discussion on engineering genes, you’ll learn how genetic engineering works and how it’s being used. From the Hunger Games’ fictional Jabberjay to today’s real life “talking mouse,” a mouse genetically engineered to have a human version of a gene important for speech, we’ll investigate the opportunities and challenges of genetic engineering. Will you make a Jabberjay or a Mockingjay?

FREE and OPEN to Junior Academy of Science members and middle and high school students from throughout the region. Registration required. PRE-REGISTRATION open to Junior Academy of Science members through Wednesday, October 30. Registration opens to the public on Thursday, October 31.
