Mission Statement

The BioBuilder Educational Foundation converts exciting and ongoing research questions in synthetic biology into teachable modules. In this way, we increase interest, engagement, and understanding of science and engineering.

Description

We put current synthetic biology research into the hands of teachers and students. Synthetic biology programs living cells to tackle today’s challenges. Biofuels, safer foods, anti-malarial drugs, less toxic cancer treatment, biodegradable adhesives -- all fuel young students’ imaginations. At BioBuilder, we empower students to tackle these big questions. BioBuilder’s curricula and teacher training capitalize on students’ need to know, to explore and to be part of solving real world problems. Developed by an award winning team out of MIT, BioBuilder is taught in schools across the country and supported by thought leaders in the STEM community.

By converting cutting-edge science and engineering into teachable modules, we foster an engaged community and we increase understanding of these fields.
