Teacher & Student Participate in Bioscience Internship Program

Teacher & Student Participate in Bioscience Program

July 2008 -MVHS teacher Amanda Attryde and student Amber Hollenbeck engaged in solving real-world problems alongside Biodesign Institute scientists as part of Arizona's largest high school bioscience internship program at Arizona State University.

In all, 24 high schools in 14 districts with existing or emerging biotechnology programs were each invited to send a teacher to participate in the intership program. The teachers, in turn, helped select students for the paid six-week internship. This opportunity was available to introduce more students to potential bioscience careers.
