High School Pathways Hub

What is the goal of this hub?

We help high school teachers introduce biotechnology into biology or chemistry classes. For CTE teachers new to Biotechnology we can direct them to curriculum resources and training for hands-on lab experiences in their classrooms.  We also help state education agencies and school districts adopt best practices for establishing CTE and non-CTE biotech programs that prepare students for biotechnology careers.

What is the High School Pathways Hub?

The Pathway Tube Graphic on the right shows an example of how biotech pathways can begin at the high school level and branch off into community college programs and/or university.

You may download this example and edit it for your own use.

What is the High School Pathways Co-Op?

All Babec labs are well organised and modelled effectively with clear, helpful procedural instructions, easily transposed to the classroom.

The online resources are SO well done! The best I have ever had. Very little modification to make them clear and easy to follow. I have done two BABEC lessons and they are so well made that they made teaching online fun again.

When doing the BABEC labs I consistently hear students say they feel like "real scientists."

Well organized and scaffolded; flexible structure and can be used partially or as a whole. This unit can be used as is...superbly written and thought out...incorporates many skills and allows student collaboration and student choice/voice.

Thank you for creating these curriculum materials. I am beyond grateful for the quality lessons, on-the-point figures/videos, and easy-to-navigate biotechnology curriculum.

The level of support really made the whole process easier and encouraged me to continue incorporating biotech into my curriculum. Thank you for the live assistance during the labs and for responding to inquiries so promptly and with such urgency.

Really well thought out curricula. Great to see "old" activities that have been re-imagined with lots of consideration to NGSS.
