ABE-Pittsburgh

The Citizen Science Lab, as the Pittsburgh site of the Amgen Biotech Experience (ABE), is hosting training sessions for regional middle and high school science teachers. The ABE program provides teachers with hands-on biotechnology curriculum and intensive professional development so that teachers can, in turn, prepare students for STEM careers and bolster the country’s economy and STEM-dependent industries. After completion of the training program, teachers are provided with not only a "classroom kit*"  comprising lab equipment and supplies, but also extensive technical support from The Citizen Science Lab.

*All training, materials, and support are provided at no charge. Act 48 credits will be awarded to teachers who complete the entirety of the program. Teacher participants will also receive a stipend at the culmination of the program.
