“The global demand for biomedical professionals is expanding rapidly, BEST Science! provides a pathway for encouraging student interest in the bioscience disciplines at this critical time. BEST Science! is designed to provide opportunities that will have a positive impact on teachers’ practices and student awareness of careers in the bioscience fields.”

-Jean May-Brett, Math Science Partnership Director for the Louisiana Department of Education.

"Being able to go beyond the book and actually bring the HeLa cells to the students through lectures; interactive activities from NIH, OMNI, National Human Genome Research, UCSC Genome browser, etc.; and most importantly, by helping the students extract DNA, and perform PCR, and electrophoresis analysis will be one of my most exciting teachable moments ever."

-Cathy Boucvalt, Teacher at John Curtis Christian School

"(This program) really helped me understand, and gave me the tools to help my students understand, the more complicated topics. I am using many of the stories and extra notes that we got from the workshop, and the kids are really interested and asking a lot of questions."

-Christina Verberne, Teacher at Loranger High School
