The HudsonAlpha BioTrain Internship program offers students the opportunity to connect classwork with real‐world job experience and gain skills and knowledge that will prepare them for careers in biotechnology and related fields. On their final day in the program, students present posters that explain the work they accomplished during their internship at HudsonAlpha. Please show your support for this year’s HudsonAlpha BioTrain interns!

Attention middle school Life Science teachers:

Registration for Middle School GPS, a new professional development opportunity offered through HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology, will open in July.

Middle School GPS (Genetics Performance Standards) is a one-day workshop that will help teachers navigate the genetics components of the 7th grade Life Science course of study. During the workshop, educators will practice utilizing models, cutting edge genomics research and pedagogical strategies to bring real-world genetics content to their classrooms. At the end of the workshop, teachers will leave with eight hours of professional learning as well as digital resources and kits to take back to their classroom.

Plan to attend Middle School GPS this year!
