Biomedical Partnership for the Research and Education Pipeline
Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA)
Alaska BioPREP is a program designed to engage 7th -12th grade students and teachers, with emphasis on rural students of Alaska Native ethnicity, in biomedical research projects that lead toward health careers. This program expands our Alaska community of science educators and learners. It begins with the intellectual rigor of scientific inquiry and then addresses the attitudes and social values conducive to learning science. Pilot projects have proved that if we can engage students in rural Alaska high schools, they go on to science majors in college.
