We’ll bring our science programs to you.
We partner with school districts to support science learning. We offer district-wide elementary, middle, and high school programs, either virtually or in-person.
We collaborate with a range of partners to innovate in science education. Together, we go further.
Zoom in on life as you explore biotechnology! Hands-on Biotech focuses on discovering the microscopic worlds inside all living things and sparking curiosity about how life’s processes can help us answer questions and solve problems. Learn to use scientific tools like pipettes and microscopes as you discover this cutting-edge field of science.
Hands-on Biotech is temporarily closed and will reopen August 30. Visit Biotech Beach on the A-level all summer!
Inspire and prepare the next generation of citizens and scientists for the world of possibilities that biotechnology offers. Gifts to this fund support the design of a wide range of learning and discovery tools for visitors of all ages, including materials found in typical biotech research labs, such as microbial culture, genetic engineering, and DNA analysis equipment and supplies. Curriculum developers and educators are able to use the space to research effective and scalable biotech learning experiences.
