Industrial Biotechnology Teacher Experience (IBTE)

Teacher w Students Pipetting


IBTE is a two week, 80-hour program developed for educators who are (or will be) teaching Biotechnology courses*, Project Lead the Way’s Biomedical Science curriculum, or any science course in which biotechnology concepts and techniques may be integrated. The primary aim of this course is to provide experience with the skills, techniques, and knowledge within biotechnology curricula in the context of working in the biotech industry. In addition, there will be guidance and practice with the preparative steps necessary for the hands-on components of the program.
Industry experience will include the design, development, testing, and manufacture of a biopharmaceutical product. Participants will develop an understanding of the departmental roles and careers, as well as the criteria associated with working in this highly regulated environment.

*Completion of this course earns district certification for existing Biology and Chemistry educators in the state of Florida, enabling them to teach the CTE components of the program.
