The goal of this project is to develop an awareness program that can be used to introduce high school students to careers in biopharmaceutical manufacturing operations.
The project will create a classroom presentation designed to engage high school students, consisting of:
In collaboration with one or more public school systems, the team will select two North Carolina high schools representing diverse racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, and geographic student populations to host pilots, scheduled sequentially to allow for revisions before the second pilot.
Finally, the project team will document lessons learned in the leader’s manual and develop marketing materials that will explain the program to teachers interested in using the program or hosting subject matter experts from industry or colleges in their classrooms. All program materials will be available online at no cost to the public.
Use the developed program to enhance awareness of careers in biomanufacturing among high school students and increase the industry’s ability to recruit and hire these candidates.
