Students in science lab
Scientific Discovery for the Classroom

How to Get Involved

Educators: The ABE program loans a kit of research-grade equipment and supplies and offers professional development to allow teachers to conduct the lab activities with their students. Find an ABE program site near you for professional development opportunities and access to this exciting program! You can also find upcoming professional development opportunities below.

Biotechnology professionals: Want to help local teachers connect their ABE labs to your work in biotechnology? Contact an ABE program site near you to find out how you can get involved.

Find out more about how you can be part of this exciting program and support biotechnology education in your community by contacting the ABE Program Office or an ABE program site near you.

NOTE: If you do not see a PDI listed for your local ABE region, please contact the program site to be notified for their next PDI. If you are not located in an ABE region, but wish to attend a PDI, please contact the Program Office; you will not be able to receive equipment and reagents through ABE if you are not in one of the current regions but can access the curriculum and are welcome to attend a PDI at your own expense.
