Amgen Foundation Support brings LabXchange Training to Colorado Teachers
By: Colorado BioScience Association Date: 10/06/2020
Through the generous support of the Amgen Foundation, the Colorado BioScience Institute (Institute), in collaboration with the Harvard LabXchange creators, will begin training Colorado teachers on LabXchange, which is a free online platform from Harvard University for learning, sharing and collaboration. This resource gives educators, learners and researchers:
- the power to create flexible learning pathways by finding and assembling high-quality content
- the power to experiment through a new generation of virtual simulations that give accesses to the research process
- the power to share with an integrational network of educators, students and researchers
- the power to solve global challenges defined by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development goals
In the current environment where we are all interacting and learning virtually this will be an invaluable resource for Colorado high school life science and career & technical education. Harvard LabXchange creators have begun training Colorado teachers on the best use of these resources in virtual and blended classroom learning environments and we cannot wait to see what our educators, students and researchers are able to accomplish with this platform.
A big thank you to the Amgen Foundation for their generous support of all STEM education but specifically STEM education in Colorado and for their commitment to advance excellence in science education to inspire the next generation of innovators.
The Institute is a 501(c)3 non-profit that provides educational activities and opportunities for individuals and companies, students and educators related to the life science industry in Colorado.
