High School Teacher Resources

As part of the National Science Foundation funded Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program, the Northeast Biomanufacturing Center and Collaborative (NBC2) is committed to creating awareness of Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields, building industry relevant curricula and strengthening the STEM pipeline from high school to college to job placement. To help fulfill this role, NBC2 summer workshops for high school teachers, summer camps for high school students, and curriculum resources that can be incorporated into high school courses.


Protein is Ca$h workshops were developed by NBC2 to provide high school teachers with hands-on experience in biotechnology and biomanufacturing, and to introduce them to careers in these fields. 

During the workshop, educators conduct a series of experiments on the expression, purification and analysis of Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP).  Lab activities include bacterial transformation, purification by column chromatography and SDS-PAGE analysis of GFP. Instructional materials for the workshop include a laboratory manual and PowerPoint presentations for the lab activities, and information on materials used in the workshop.

In April 2019, NBC2 and Montgomery County Community College hosted a STEM Career Pathways Conference to give high school teachers and counselors an opportunity to engage with industry professionals to gain insight about current and emerging technologies, hear about successful STEM career pathways, and learn about rewarding and in-demand careers. Videos of the Keynote presentations and short interviews of STEM professionals will be coming soon. In addition, a list of online resources to inform high school teachers and students about exciting careers in STEM fields can be found at the following link.
