3. To bridge the gap between current curricula and industry-relevant skills.
Biotechnology is a diverse field that includes tools and techniques that let us use biology to solve problems and make useful products.
Biomanufacturing uses biological components or living organisms such as bacteria, yeast, and algae to make new products or replacements for current products that are more sustainable and environmentally friendly than current processes.
Biomanufacturing Explorers June 3-14th (Monday through Friday, 9a-4p)
Rising 10th, 11th, or 12th graders with little to no prior exposure to biotechnology or biomanufacturing. Students curious about biotechnology are encouraged to participate.
Biomanufacturing Trailblazers July 8-19th (Monday through Friday, 9a-4p)
Rising 11th or 12th graders with some experience with biotechnology preferred. Students passionate or interested in learning more about biotechnology and biomanufacturing opportunities are encouraged to participate.
*Students may only attend one camp. Students who have participated in the Explorers camp are welcome and encouraged to apply for the Trailblazers camp.
Both camps require that the applicant has taken and passed high school level biology.
