Education Spotlight: Bay Area Bioscience Education Community (BABEC)
Educational communities everywhere are incorporating software tools to better prepare students for their next step. Read on to see how BABEC and Benchling help to enable careers in biotechnology.
Locally grown and responsibly sourced science education
The San Francisco Bay Area is widely known as a hub of innovation in software, biotechnology, and medicine which is largely connected to its educational infrastructure. Top-tier universities and schools attract high-caliber talent to the area and successful alumni help to maintain these institutions’ substantial funding. However, these events can lead to educational inequalities that often get overlooked. Not all communities benefit from the Bay’s reputation as a leader in science and technology. This is especially true for school systems that lack adequate resources and financial support.
