What is the NUBIO Project?
NUBIO was conceived at the intersection of authentic scientific research and the high school classroom. NUBIO’s purpose is to create lab-driven discovery of core biology content.  The labs and activities developed for this project bring the excitement of modern biomedical research and technology to the high school classroom.

NUBIO was developed through a collaboration between Northwestern University’s School of Education & Social Policy, the Woodruff Laboratory at the Feinberg School of Medicine, and local Chicago-area educators
