Teaching the Teachers Beyond Health Care… Preparing Students for Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing Careers!
Join us virtually for a fun-filled afternoon designed to catapult your Biology, Biomedical Science, and Allied Health students toward careers in biotechnology and biomanufacturing. Teachers will participate in a hands-on activity – materials will be mailed out to attendees ahead of the workshop – to learn the core concepts of cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practice) and FDA regulatory guidelines for companies who manufacture drugs, drug products, and medical devices. Learn about the Biotechnician Assistant Credential and Exam (BACE) and about local career opportunities and possible internships. In partnership with Washington State University and Biotility, this workshop is most appropriate for high school classroom teachers in grades 9-12, but middle school classroom teachers are welcome to register. Engineering and Manufacturing teachers may also enjoy the application to solving biological and biomedical problems. Supplies will be mailed to registrants ahead of the workshop date.
For more information on the BACE prior to attending the event, look here: https://biotility.research.ufl.edu/bace/.
