Would your students benefit from hands-on and inquiry-based life sciences activities in their classrooms, industry guest speakers and visits to local biotechnology companies and college campuses? Would your students benefit from up-to-date information on the workforce development and job skills trends in the life sciences?

MassBioEd & Science from Scientists, both recognized as premier STEM educational initiatives in Massachusetts, are launching a new joint program. We will provide middle and high school life sciences teachers and students with lab experiences and curriculum relevant to the life sciences industry. Students served in middle school will revisit the lab experiences and curriculum with greater sophistication in high schools supported by equipment and training grants. Through our partnerships with area colleges and life sciences companies, these same students will explore college and career opportunities in an effort to build a connected pipeline of classroom to career experiences for students and teachers.

We will provide potential partners with 1) much-needed technology and laboratory equipment, 2) robust, field-tested and frameworks-relevant lessons, 3) instruction for teachers in the effective implementation of labs and lab-based courses, 4) support to incorporate in-school mentoring to overcome implementation barriers, and 5) increased student access to college and career exploration opportunities.

We are seeking to build teams of middle & high school teachers, faculty and district administrators that are committed to sustaining life science experiences, college and career opportunities. Each team will be supported by equipment and transportation grants, with mentoring and technical assistance from MassBioEd & Science from Scientists.
