Summer Courses


To support and encourage educators, GGC offers courses for science teachers during the summer. GGC faculty have been teaching summer courses since 1994 incorporating a combination of didactic lecture with hands-on laboratory activities. An online hybrid format has recently been developed to make these courses more accessible. Participants earn three transferable graduate credit hours, or the credits may also be used for recertification. Courses are offered on a rotating schedule with registration beginning early spring.

For more information about summer courses, contact Leta M. Tribble, PhD at (864) 943-4170 or lmt@ggc.org.

However, sometimes the unexpected can be both an obstacle and blessing at the same time; you just need someone to help you see both sides. The Greenwood Genetic Center is a place that helps shed some light on the...
