Welcome to the LENScence Senior Biology Seminar Series 2011

  • The 2011 Seminar Series takes place from Term 1 to Term 3 and consists of 9 seminars, run in three week blocks.
  • Weeks 1 and 3 of each block are local workshops held in schools. Week 2 of each block is the seminar broadcast.

This broadcast can also be received through the KAREN network for schools connected to the National Education Network.
  • In some regional centres, students from multiple schools will gather in a central location. Please refer to the schools registration page to identify a centre near you.

Curriculum concepts to be covered this year include:

Gene Expression; Mutations; Cell Cycle; Biotechnological Techniques; Evolution; Speciation; Chronobiology; Human Evolution; Ecosystems; Nature of Science
