The Amgen Biotech Experience transforms classrooms into working laboratories by introducing students to the excitement of real-world research based science. The program explores the steps involved in creating biotechnology medicines. Our program housed on SCC's campus has been working with schools for the last 7 years and this grant has recently been renewed for another two-year funding cycle. In the 2012-13 school year, 55 teachers were newly trained and 7,800 students were able to work with the curriculum; building recombinant DNA.
