Week 2 rotations: Applying practical skills to research projects

This week, the students were assigned to slightly larger groups to work with a new set of teammates in an activity called “Research Rotations.” Each rotation lasts for three days. The students apply the practical skills they learned during Week 1 to solve a problem in biological engineering. After the first three-day rotation, the students switch teams and topics to work on a second project. Research rotations provide some depth to the students’ hands-on experience in synthetic biology, while providing an opportunity to work on more than a single project.
