System Thinkers in Stem

Systems Thinkers in STEM

We have created a “Systems Thinkers in STEM” video interview series featuring STEM professionals from a wide range of STEM and healthcare careers. These videos serve to provide students and educators with the opportunity to connect to real-world STEM careers and learn how systems thinking plays a role in all STEM career pathways.

What is Systems Biology

What is Systems Biology?

Simply put, systems biology is the study of an organism as a whole rather than as a sum of its parts. Instead of analyzing individual components or aspects of the organism, such as sugar metabolism or a cell nucleus, systems biologists simultaneously study all the components and the interactions among them, all as part of one system.

Funding

Funding

Our summer internship program and curriculum development are supported by NSF and philanthropy. NIH’s NIGMS through the Center for Systems Biology (2P50GM076547) catalyzed our initial national dissemination efforts. Read More about “Funding”

Teacher Testimonials

Tim Fowler, Olympic High School, Bremerton, WA

“These modules continue to be amongst the favorite activities of the year with my students.”

Dexter Chapin, Seattle Academy, Seattle, WA

“One of the really outstanding characteristics of these modules is the degree of continuity from one to another. While each module can stand alone, the skills and competencies developed in on will be used in the next.”

Mari Herbert, Lynden High School, Lynden, WA

“The curriculum is very useful for addressing many Next Generation Science Standards at once and the equipment and materials required are inexpensive and manageable for any teacher and in any setting.”
