2019 BioTeach Innovative School of the Year Award

The Innovative School of the Year Award was established by MassBioEd in 2010 to recognize a BioTeach high school that distinguished itself through exemplary educational programming in the life sciences. Schools are evaluated on the depth and breadth of life science educational programs, the level of engagment with MassBioEd, effective application of BioTeach or related biotechnology curriculum, and for innovative biotechnology education and career programming to foster curiosity and inspire student interest in life science careers.
