Teacher Resources

STEM Curriculum Designed to Inspire, Engage and Empower

NH CREATES

An essential component of the NH CREATES initiative is to build a collection of dynamic curriculum plans and classroom projects for middle and high school STEM teachers focused on regenerative medicine and biotechnology. The goal is to empower educators by providing access to high-quality resources that foster innovation and creativity, save on preparation time and promote equity and inclusion.

The tabs below correspond to subject areas explored in our summer programs and projects created and tested by participants in the Tech for Teachers Institute and program leaders at Tech Camp. These carefully curated materials align with national standards and cater to diverse learning styles, ensuring that all students have access to engaging and rigorous STEM education.

We will be adding to this resource library over time, so please bookmark the page and visit again to see what’s new!
 

Molecular Dynamics

The study of regenerating organisms, known as regenerative biology or regenerative medicine, focuses on understanding how certain organisms can repair, replace or regenerate damaged or lost tissues and organs. This field explores the natural processes of tissue regeneration found in various organisms, ranging from simple organisms like planaria (a type of flatworm) to more complex ones like amphibians and fish. Topics covered in this subject area include stem cell biology, tissue remodeling and signaling pathways. Research focused on regenerative organisms is leading to new therapeutic approaches for healing injuries, diseases and conditions that currently have limited or no effective treatments.

Molecular Dynamics

The study of cryopreservation involves the preservation of biological materials, such as cells, tissues, organs and even whole organisms, at very low temperatures, typically below -130°C (-202°F), to maintain their viability and functionality for extended periods. Cryopreservation is essential for various fields, including regenerative medicine, biotechnology, agriculture and conservation biology.

Molecular Dynamics

The study of computational biology, also known as bioinformatics, is an interdisciplinary field that combines principles of biology, computer science, mathematics and statistics to analyze and interpret biological data. Computational biologists use computational techniques and algorithms to understand biological processes, predict outcomes and solve complex biological problems.
