Campaign: Amgen Biotech Experience
Hear from students in Whitely Secondary School, Singapore as they share their experiences of how the Amgen Biotech Experience sparked their interest in science discovery. The Amgen Foundation, in partnership with the Singapore Science Center, launched the Amgen Biotech Experience (ABE) program in Singapore as part of a $10.5 million investment in the longstanding science education program. For nearly 30 years, ABE has empowered high school science teachers to implement real-world biotechnology labs in their classrooms, helping their students better understand science and how it influences their daily lives. The three-week in-class lab initiative provides teacher professional development, teaching materials, and research-grade equipment to classrooms to immerse students in the concepts and techniques scientists use to discover and develop medicines. Globally, ABE is expected to reach nearly 900,000 secondary school students by 2020 in 18 regions around the world. Learn more about ABE by visiting http://www.AmgenBiotechExperience.com.
