There is no pre-required knowledge, and all levels of experience in biology are welcome. In the spirit of Learning Circles, we will organize group learning activities which will give opportunities for more advanced participants to help beginners and for everyone to improve their understanding of biology, in a friendly and low-pressure environment.
The first session will consist of an introduction to the Learning Circle, a discussion centered around participants' background and expectations, and activities to get started with learning biology.
