Please forward to all folks you think might be interested, and networks.Questions? Reach out!Warm regards,Ragnar
Futurelab is Genentech’s science education program in deep partnership with the South San Francisco Unified School District (SSFUSD). Futurelab builds on Genentech’s long-standing commitment to science education and seeks to make a difference in the lives of local students by providing students with hands-on science learning opportunities, empowering teachers, and inspiring employees.
The Genentech Foundation is donating Science Garage, a $7.8M dollar, state of the art biotech classroom and lab at South San Francisco High School where all high school students from SSFUSD can take California state-approved biotechnology curriculum classes. In preparation for the building’s opening, we have launched the prototype of a three-year biotech curriculum in August 2016 at SSF high schools. This curriculum is UC/CSU approved as an A-G lab science elective that is 100% hands-on and lab-focused. Additionally, we created a 4-week biotech unit every 9th grade biology student takes to introduce biotech concepts. Science Garage and our biotechnology pathway will engage over 1,000 SSF students by end of 2017 and equip these students with the skills they need to explore a potential career in STEM.
Genentech and SSFUSD are preparing for the launch of the biotech curriculum’s second full year in SSFUSD high schools. SSFUSD is hiring a Teacher on Special Assignment (TOSA), who will play an integral role in building and implementing the launch of the curriculum focusing on instructional coaching, knowledge of how to execute in-class biotech lab experiments, and support other Futurelab activities.
