This year, a new educational initiative is being implemented at the SIMB Annual meeting. A group of local high school science teachers will be attending the meeting to learn about ongoing research in the fields of industrial microbiology and biotechnology and the professional opportunities available in these fields.
High school science teachers at any schools in the Orleans Parish School District and the Jefferson Parish School District are eligible to apply. Applications should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 15th, 2016. Selected teachers will be notified by June 1st, 2016.
