Title: DC Biotech
Url: http://www.dcbiotech.org/
Publisher: DCBiotech
Description: DC Biotech is a student-centered project dedicated to encourage and assist Washington DC public school students to pursue careers in the rapidly growing, multi-billion dollar Biotechnology industry. DCBiotech's NSF award states: "The DC Biotech project is creating a Washington, DC area consortium to improve student competencies in science, broaden students' career opportunities, and improve biotechnology workforce diversity. Project Objectives include providing professional development for teachers including research opportunities, summer training, online coursework, and in-school/class mentoring so they can prepare their students for the biotech workplace; providing support for students to intern to gain experience in a professional workplace; establishing, with the DCPS Office of Career and Technical Education (OCTE) and our workplace partners, a certificate of employability in biotechnology; establishing, with OCTE and Montgomery College, coursework articulation that will prepare graduates of the high school biotech program for further study. The site currently only provides information on the project but looks to add resources for both students and teachers in the future.
