COVID-19 update: The ABE program is committed to supporting teachers and students during this extraordinary time. We have developed a set of resources that aims to help teachers and students as they explore science online rather than face-to-face.

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.
