Making the Polymerase Chain Reaction Easier with PCR EdvoBeads™
Invented in 1983 by Kary Mullis, PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) has become indispensable in modern molecular biology research. Through a clever use of DNA polymerase Dr. Mullis discovered a method to quickly create many copies of a specific sequence of DNA in vitro. Many schools have already incorporated PCR into their biology lab sections, allowing the students to experience the technique in person.

Edvotek Visits the City of Brotherly Love
Edvotek recently had the opportunity to participate in the NSTA area conference in Philadelphia. Surprisingly, it was the first opportunity for many of our team members to visit this marvelous city, so we made sure to arrive early to explore. We were amazed by all of the history on display, contributing to Philadelphia’s designation as the sole World Heritage City in the United States, a privilege enjoyed by only 250 cities around the world.

Edvotek Road Trip - A Brief Tour of the West Coast!
A few weeks ago, Edvotek kicked off our Fall Conference Schedule by attending the yearly meeting for the California Science Teachers Association in Sacramento, California. Before the conference started, we had time to wander around the city and take in the sites. Our first stop was Old Sacramento, which is the oldest part of town. We had fun wandering the cobblestone streets and the historic buildings. In fact, we stopped at the B. F. Hastings Building, which served as the western terminal of the Pony Express. We also toured the historic California State Capitol.
