BIOMAN High School Academies

What is Biotechnology?

Biotechnology is using living systems to develop tools and products that improve our world and enhance our quality of life. In medicine, biotechnology is being used to combat diseases through cell and gene therapies as well as novel diagnostic methods and biotherapeutics. In other areas, biotechnology is used to produce sustainable foods, renewable fuels, investigate crimes and clean up pollution. In our BIOMAN Academy you will perform hands-on experiments, manipulate DNA and purify proteins, learn about careers in biotechnology and more!

BIOMAN Academies are four-day, hands-on workshops hosted during the summer at the NBC2 hub schools for high school students entering grades 10-12. Thanks to a generous National Science Foundation grant, BIOMAN Academies are FREE to attend, and all necessary supplies and laboratory PPE are provided.
