DEADLINE TO APPLY: FRIDAY, APRIL 10, 2015

The LSSI-Amgen Program six-day summer institute will take place on July 9-16, 2015 at San Diego Miramar College.  This program takes the place of the previous 12-day LSSI Teacher program but will provide the same overview and training of the Amgen Biotech Experience (ABE) hands-on biotechnology lab series with industry site visits.

This year, the program will be peer-to-peer taught bringing in highly experienced ABE Teachers currently implementing the series in their classrooms. The program will provide hands-on instruction, sharing of best practices, and networking.

The six-day institute is open to local high school and middle school science teachers currently or will be teaching a lab course in the upcoming 2015-2016 school year.

Once teachers complete the training they will receive:

  • Implementation support including loaner lab equipment and supplies
  • Access to other resources and curriculum provided by the Miramar Amgen Teacher Support Center (MATSC) at the Southern California Biotechnology Center
  • Will be part of the ABE community and access to resources, discussion forums, webinars, and teaching materials through the Amgen Biotech Experience
  • Invitation to special industry site visits planned throughout the school year for teachers
  • Implementation support including loaner lab equipment and supplies
  • $500 upon implemention during the following school year (applies only to teachers that implement within our SD-ABE region)
