S2021: COVID-19: Understanding and Modeling Viruses in BC_Splash BC Splash Spring 2021 (Mar. 28, 2021)
Are you interested in how scientists track the spread of infectious diseases or pathogens like viruses? Are you curious about how a viral pathogen causes disease? This is the class for you! We will explore different ways to model how a disease spreads through a population, including the famed SIR model, as well as discuss the molecular biology and pathogenesis of viruses.

S1968: Cellular Biology 101 in BC Splash Fall 2020 (Nov. 08, 2020)
Welcome to the fundamentals of cell biology! In this class, we will explore the famed Central Dogma of biology, DNA and RNA (the blueprint of all life on earth), animal and plant cells (and how they work, what they are made of, etc), basic genetics, and the many organelles within the cell that come together to create life!
