 Geniverse Summer Online Course
 We invite you to join us this summer for an interactive online course
 that will guide you through the process of using our free, game-like
 genetics software and support materials with your students next year.
 Geniverse engages students with a compelling narrative introduction,
 offers multiple levels of interactive challenges, and includes the
 practice of scientific argumentation.
 Dragon Summer Camp is open to both high school and middle school
 teachers and will span approximately two weeks, beginning August 8,
 2014 and ending August 23rd. This online course will contain
 synchronous and asynchronous components and require approximately 25
 hours of work. You will learn how to facilitate our online game-like
 genetics software, support student work in scientific argumentation,
 and provide us with detailed feedback on the course and support
 materials. Your participation also requires access to a reliable
 computer, internet connection and the Google Chrome browser. In
 exchange for your active participation in this professional
 development opportunity, you will receive a stipend of $500.
 Please note that you will not be able to run Geniverse on iPads or
 other touch-screen tablets for this course; however, a
 tablet-friendly version is planned for a later release.
 Space is limited--apply by June 1, 2014! We will review the
 applications and notify applicants of acceptance decisions on June
 15, 2014.
