Amgen Biotech Experience
The Amgen Biotech Experience offers free professional development workshops for science teachers to learn contemporary biotechnology theory and lab techniques in order to conduct advanced labs in their own classrooms. All curriculum and supplies, as well as a three-week loan of research-grade lab equipment, are provided at no charge to participating teachers, allowing them to implement these labs in their schools.
As Site Director for the Greater Los Angeles area of the program, Oak Crest’s Sherry Tsai is responsible for overseeing program activities in an area that includes Los Angeles, Orange, and Ventura Counties. An international program, the Amgen Biotech Experience serves more than 20,000 students annually from its Los Angeles site alone.
