Second Edition, 2017

  
Biotechnology: Science for the New Millennium has been used in the San Mateo Biotechnology Career Pathway (SMBCP) courses for 3 decades. Started in 1995, SMBCP instructs approximately 400 high school students per year coming from 10 different high schools. Annually, 30-40 student interns complete laboratory internships with mentors at any of 25 local biotechnology facilities. Although focused on the middle 50% of the high school student population, the program has students coming from all socioeconomic and academic levels.
  
Tested for over twenty years, Biotechnology: Science for the New Millennium (BS4NM) is an age-independent curriculum. The 2006 and 2012 editions of BS4NM are being used at over 1200 high schools and over 300 colleges. The 2017 edition will be available June 2016.
  
BS4NM contains enough activities for four years of curriculum, with the hope that schools develop programs that match the needs of their students, community, and industry. The text is presented in short sections so students may master the concepts as they build the lab proficiencies needed in adult science workplaces. With all the support biotechnology educators need, BS4NM is a comprehensive lab-based curriculum where high-level bioscience concepts support the development of lab skills needed to work in an adult science environment.
