The Georgia BioEd Institute is cultivating the future life science workforce in Georgia by supporting teachers and preparing students to address tomorrow’s challenges through biotechnology and health sciences innovation.
With your support, we can continue to offer professional development for teachers, provide laboratory supplies to classrooms, and reward student research in biotechnology. Together, we can expand our initiatives to reach 100,000 students at schools throughout Georgia. Your support will help us to introduce new initiatives to include a teacher leadership program, internships for teachers and students, and a statewide Chief Science Officer (CSO) program to empower students to lead local STEM activities, have a voice in statewide education and workforce discussions, and develop the communication, collaboration, and project management skills that employers are seeking.
