TORCH Institutes for Teachers

Teacher OutReaCH (TORCH) institutes are 1-week workshops for middle- and high-school teachers of biology, physics, physical science, chemistry, mathematics, and history. Designed to increase knowledge of general content, applications, and teaching techniques, the courses are led by teams of teachers who have completed month-long institutes under the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation. Colleges, universities, school districts, or local education agencies may apply to sponsor and locally host an institute. [Contact for sponsoring or attending an institute: Geri Marchioni (609/452-7007 ext. 21, marchioni@woodrow.org) or Mary Apodaca (ext. 19, apodac@woodrow.org), Fax: -0066]

Human Genome Project 1990–2003

The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international 13-year effort, 1990 to 2003. Primary goals were to discover the complete set of human genes and make them accessible for further biological study, and determine the complete sequence of DNA bases in the human genome. See Timeline for more HGP history.
