We are excited to announce our next round of the Rural Teacher Training Initiative, Biotech Infusion! Starting March 10th, non-biotech science teachers in rural middle and high school are invited to learn how biotech exists in all science disciplines, from biology and chemistry, to healthcare and agriculture.

Ways for Industry to Get Involved

Share Your Hiring Needs

Provide a list of skills your company looks for when hiring entry-level employees. We would prefer a list of science skills, but would also like to know about the top soft skills that your company needs. Entry-level job descriptions would be helpful. Your contributions will drive the training curriculum.

Donate Materials

The Equipment Depot can take in any equipment or unused disposable items that your business would otherwise throw away. The disposable items can be outside of their expiration date, if applicable. We will in turn donate these materials to the teachers, so that they can be used in their classrooms. If there are larger pieces of equipment (freezers, incubators, centrifuges, etc), we can notify teachers to schedule pickup with your company. Check out our wish list here!
