Your Students In Biotechnology
      Biotechnology: Science for the New Millennium is a comprehensive program that prepares adults and teenagers for a variety of post-secondary options including community or career college biotechnology certificate programs, four-year biotechnology degree programs, and industry workplaces. The vast text and laboratory curriculum was development and improved with input from an industry advisory committee composed of laboratory internship mentors. Biotechnology: Science for the New Millennium allows students to increase conceptual background as they build lab proficiencies. Science-bound and business-bound students benefit from the extensive skill development, science methods, and career exploration that permeate the curriculum.

Ellyn Daugherty
Founder of the
San Mateo Biotechnology Career Pathway (SMBCP) and Author of
Biotechnology: Science for the New Millennium
Biotechnology: Science for the New Millennium has been used in the San Mateo Biotechnology Career Pathway (SMBCP) courses for the past ten years. Started in 1995, SMBCP instructs approximately 175 high school students and 35 adults per year. Annually, 50-70 student interns complete internships with mentors at any of 20 local biotechnology companies. 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 ten years, Biotechnology: Science for the New Millennium 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 proficiencies in employable lab skills.
