COVID-19 update: We have developed a set of resources, including a new online curriculum, that aims to help teachers and students as they explore science online rather than face-to-face. Also, the LabXchange platform includes resources that allow students to engage in ABE remotely.

The Amgen Biotech Experience (ABE) is an innovative science education program that empowers teachers to bring biotechnology to their classrooms. ABE provides teacher professional development, curriculum materials, and research-grade equipment and supplies to secondary schools.
