Graduate student Quinn Maccashin instructs on the Canadian Glymmics Network, where workshops for 40 Edmonton-area high school science teachers are organized on Carbohydrates and on 30th November, 2007, the University of Alberta, Edmonton, is conducting on the roadmap for studying in the science class.

High school teachers were on the other side of the classroom at Alberta University on Friday and got carbohydrates to play with research in their own backyard.
Nearly 40 Edmonton-area teachers participated in 42 activities providing activities and activities made on glycomics by local educators and researchers, and studies of carbohydrates in humans.
The workshop was organized by the Canadian Research Network, which has been supported by the University of Mathematical, Science and Technology Education (CMASTE) to support the study and teachings of glycomics, and local lenses for the purpose of bringing carbohydrate science to their classroom.
Glyconate Training and Project Management Co-Ordinator Ryan Snininsky said, "What teachers are expecting to teach and break the barriers between the research that is going on in Edmonton and Alberta." "Today we are highlighting people and projects that many of these teachers teach go down the road."
Slytisky stated that Glyconate hopes that this Alberta Pilot project will provide role models for students and help develop interest in carbohydrate studies.
"We do not expect that they will be all carbohydrate scientists, but by this experience as voters, citizens and taxpayers, they will be able to deeply appreciate the ongoing science in their communities and understand seriously the problems of the society," he said.
Switzhorsky explained that the student teachers learned about the student's research in the University for the treatment of tuberculosis and Alzheimer's disorders, because sugar is the first point of contact for diseases in cells.
"If we can understand those types of interactions, then we can use that information to develop new treatments and new drugs," he said.
After completing the hands-on activity to build a protein structure, grade 11 and 12 biology teacher Katie Tewesen said that it would bring blood type typing and immune response, such as the practical effects of carbohydrates in the body.
"She cares more about children because she actually affects it," she told about workshops created by fellow teachers, who spent three summers with researchers in six universities in the country. "It is more understanding of what you can use in the classroom actually because it has been developed by former teachers."
Glyconate, which has been started in the United States and now in 31 institutions across the country, hopes to expand the workshop program into other regions and help Carbonhydrate science translate into high school students.
