VCE Biology Program

The School of BioSciences at The University of Melbourne is running a laboratory workshop program for VCE Biology students from 10th - 21st July 2023.

Our 2023 program

The School of BioSciences at The University of Melbourne annually hosts laboratory workshops for VCE Biology students on campus. The workshop enables students to complete practical laboratory activities in a tertiary education setting to support Outcomes 1 and 2 of Unit 4, VCE Biology 2023.

The activities are:

  • Analysis of evidence for evolutionary change and the effect on population structure using Drosophila melanogaster as a model
  • Immunity and Influenza: A Case Study

In 2023, we are offering schools who book the Unit 4 laboratory workshop complimentary access to an online activity relevant to Unit 3 Outcome 1. This is optional. Access via usernames and passwords along with activity notes will be distributed to interested teachers during Term 1.
