The three-year grant enables CASE to offer extensive professional development, a rigorous biotechnology curriculum, and research-grade laboratory equipment loans to D.C. high school teachers. With Amgen Foundation's support, CASE will train over 30 D.C. teachers, who will engage up to 800 D.C. students in hands-on, laboratory-based learning experiences.According to an independent evaluation by WestEd, a nonprofit educational agency, students who participate in ABE have substantial gains in biotechnology learning and increased interest in doing science. Change the Equation, a coalition to improve science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) literacy, distinguished ABE with the highest ranking in STEMworks, its database of effective STEM education programs. CASE is excited to bring real-world lab experiences to Washington, D.C., high school students."
