Amgen Biotech Experience

The Amgen Biotech Experience is an innovative science education program that provides teacher professional development, teaching materials, and professional research-grade lab equipment to middle and high schools. Each year, more than 60,000 students and hundreds of science teachers participate in the Amgen Biotech Experience to explore the methods scientists use to create biotechnology medicines. To date, the Foundation has committed over $13 million to provide hands-on molecular biology curricula to over 425,000 students across multiple U.S. states, Puerto Rico, U.K., and Ireland.
