CONTRIBUCIÓN AL DESARROLLO DE LA BIOTECNOLOGÍA DESDE LA EDUCACIÓN EN LOS NIVELES DE LA BÁSICA Y MEDIA
The article presents the generalities of Biotechnology (definition, main applications and
reaches), difficulties about its deficient development in Colombia. It proposed the
realization of pedagogical projects with students enrolled on basic and middle
education, with the goal to contribute to the solution about Natural Science teaching
problems, and the development of Biotechnology in Colombia. A reflection is made
about an experience with high school students on the frame of a pedagogical project
that implied a work dealing contextualization and biotechnological applications.
Other elements are presented in general way to contribute to the development in
Biotechnology from educational aspects.
