Teachers: Support, Train and Retain

Laboratory science is new to a lot of teachers but Biotechnology is an exciting frontier and a journey for both teachers and students. At Georgia Bio, we’re here to help.

I Love Science - sign for discovery and knowledge.

What is a Teacher Training?

  • Day long training workshop in cutting edge laboratory science techniques and concepts

  • Georgia BioEd believes in sustainable efforts and accountability when it comes to funding. We want to be responsible stewards and ensure continuity and impact of our programs.
  • Georgia BioEd wants to build a strong workforce pipeline so that students have access and opportunity in this important field; and so companies have a prepared workforce.
  • Oh and we LOVE science! We hope you will too, if you don’t already.

Hear what others think:

“For a one day training the organizers did a good job of covering good content and efficiently managed to maximize the hands on lab work”.

“I like the arrangement with a speaker and a lab component!”

“It was exactly what I needed at the time!”

“This Biotech 101 training that I attended last week gave me the confidence to do labs, specifically micro pipetting. In my previous sessions I was  letting the others in the group to do it and was only a witness to how they  were doing. In the ELISA lab we did in this training I was able to understand the usage of the different versions of micro pipets. I am happy for my choice to attend this training on the last day of my summer break.  I personally appreciate the human touch that you add to it all. Thank you again.” ~Josephine J.
