BioTeach

BioTeach is the flagship program of MassBioEd Foundation. It is an ambitious multi-year science education program designed to support biotechnology instruction and career awareness activities. The program provides students with the opportunity to experience science in the making by supporting schools with research equipment, free workshops for teacher professional development, and building connections with a professional network of scientists. Students' classroom learning is complemented by a range of college and career exploration events. The goal of the program is to enable middle and high schools throughout Massachusetts to teach biotechnology and engage students with hands-on lab experiences that inspire scientific curiosity, understanding, and for some, a career in the life sciences.

Through BioTalent, MassBioEd illuminates the many pathways into careers in the life sciences and strives to build a diverse and talented workforce. For many years, the demand for talent has exceeded the supply, which is both a challenge and an opportunity. BioTalent’s activities tackle this challenge in multiple ways. Career exploration events engage those about to enter the workforce and students thinking about the future. Apprenticeships offer a pathway into new careers, particularly for historically underrepresented populations. BioTalent conducts real time research on industry development, employer needs, and projected hiring trends, utilizing the information to build partnerships and initiatives that align traditional and non-traditional training with industry needs.
