The Amgen Biotech Experience is an innovative science education program that empowers teachers to bring biotechnology into their classrooms. With leadership from university and other partners in each region, the lab initiative provides teacher professional development, teaching materials, and research-grade lab equipment to high schools. Today, 80,000 students and hundreds of science teachers participate annually in the Amgen Biotech Experience labs to explore the methods scientists use to create biotechnology medicines. To date, the Amgen Foundation has committed more than $14 million to provide hands-on molecular biology curricula to over 500,000 students across multiple U.S. states, Puerto Rico, U.K., and Ireland.
