The GENIQUEST Project:

Bringing STEM Data to High School Classrooms

The GENIQUEST project is an NSF-funded project of the Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance, The Concord Consortium and The Jackson Laboratory. GENIQUEST aims to bring current bioinformatics concepts and research techniques to secondary science students. GENIQUEST integrates innovative approaches in science instruction from MMSA, data sets and genetics research knowledge from the Jackson Laboratories and a robust genetics modeling environment from the Concord Consortium. The result is an intriguing biology computing environment that spurs student investigation and inquiry.
