ISAAA Launches Double Helix Magazine Supplement for Senior High School Students
Sunday, 2022/10/02 | 05:48:42

ISAAA Inc., as part of the Know The Science: Strengthening Biotech Links project with the Philippine Department of Agriculture Biotechnology Program Office, launches Double Helix, the first and only magazine supplement on agricultural biotechnology (agbiotech) for senior high school students taking the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) strand in the country.

 

Double Helix was developed for senior high school students to help introduce them to agbiotech. The eight-page magazine is filled with illustrated stories, infographics, and activities to engage the young mind. The maiden issue of the Double Helix presents the process of developing a biotech crop, the countries where biotech crops are grown, biotech crops in the Philippines, Filipino biotech corn farmers, news briefs, and some cool and fun science activities and exercises for senior high school students and their teachers to enjoy. The magazine was developed by ISAAA Inc.'s Global Knowledge Center on Biotechnology team, who hopes to impart how biotech crops are developed and the immense benefits that consumers, farmers, their families, and communities enjoy from planting such crops.

 

The Double Helix is free to download from the ISAAA Inc. website. It is also free to use, and interested high schools can get in touch with the ISAAA Inc. team if they want to use the magazine in their instruction. A Teacher's Companion that includes a guide to related ISAAA Inc. publications and suggested quizzes on specific topics is also available to help teachers navigate the magazine's pages.

 

The Double Helix is available for download on the ISAAA Inc. website. For inquiries, send an email to double.helix@isaaa.org.
