BioQuest offers the following programs:
BioQuest's Site Explorations are half-day, mini job shadows for an entire class of high school students that include conversations with Seattle BioMed scientists, tours of the Seattle BioMed’s research facilities and a hands-on lab investigation in the BioQuest Discovery Lab. The Site Explorations program, is fully booked for the remainder of this academic year. Please contact email@example.com in September if you would like to request a Site Exploration for the 2013-14 school year.
BioQuest has designed a series of curriculum and workshops for teachers with an emphasis on global health and infectious disease research. Our workshops, provide teachers with in-depth dialog with Seattle BioMed scientists, intimate peeks into Seattle BioMed’s life-saving research programs (e.g., malaria, TB and HIV) and training in global health curriculum to support classroom advancement in state standards. Contact BioQuest for more details.
Global Health Curriculum
Don’t wait for a workshop to bring global health topics into your classroom. Designed by teams of teachers and Seattle BioMed scientists, BioQuest curriculum (both print and animated) uniquely offers the authenticity and inspiring context of malaria, tuberculosis and vaccine development to your classroom approaches!
Looking for a more intimate exposure to science and global health? We will soon be accepting applications for 2013 summer sessions for current high school juniors through the Academy website.
Step off of busy Westlake Avenue and find yourself in the “community living room for life sciences”. The BioQuest gallery features artistic exhibits to educate visitors and the community about the challenges of infectious disease as it relates to global health and the hope offered by Seattle BioMed’s research.
Each year, with philanthropic support, BioQuest staff facilitate the placement of 18 year old teens in Seattle BioMed research laboratories. We have already selected our summer 2013 teens. To learn more about how you can make a contribution to the summer teen internship program and the future research leaders that we hire please visit the Seattle BioMed "Give Today" page.
