Why Participate?

Supporting local biotechnology programs can mean
the difference between a laggingUS STEM workforceor
a future where access and opportunity become
tomorrow’s innovations. Through this program we can
bring awareness to a vast array of career paths that
many students have never been exposed to before!

"All students, not just those destined for a scientific,
technical, or health-related career, can benefit from
the skills that science education can provide—such as
critical thinking, data analysis, working in teams, and
oral and written communication. The need for scientists
to share their unique skills and understanding with their
own local school or school system has also never been
more pressing.”
