About Exploring Biotech

This series was created through a partnership with 6th grade students and teachers in Berkeley and San Leandro, California and was made possible with funding from the Bayer Fund. The videos are part of instructional resources for middle school classrooms, and were used in conjunction with hands-on biotech activities. We will be adding additional resources related to these experiences soon.
