“If we are to continue to solve the toughest health challenges of tomorrow, we need to cultivate the talent today. I can say with authority that employers will be waiting, but more importantly, patients are waiting. At MedImmune we are driven to create life-saving medicines — a process that does not happen without people who… read more
“By supporting groups like MdBio we’re creating opportunities for people to prepare for rewarding careers, especially at a time when so many jobs are unfulfilled in the U.S. today, lacking qualified applicants. We support programs that prepare people for college and careers – especially STEM careers – and MdBio does that and more.” – LaTara… read more
“We are excited to be working with MdBio to help communities rebuild after Hurricane Harvey. This hands-on learning laboratory is helping to build resiliency for the children in this community by contributing to their STEM education.” – Neeraj Aggarwal, Program Director of Rebuild Texas Fund.
The students were excited daily to enter the mobile lab and were exposed to a variety of experiments. I remember one of the most exciting days was when they solved the mystery of the broken beaker! They were meticulous at all data collecting and were on task to solve the mystery. Many of the labs… read more
I wanted to thank you and your crew for the great week we had with the Bio Lab. It could not have gone any better – from the site prep and the drop off, to the experience provided for our students. We wanted access for all students, and we received more than we could hope for! Our ESOL… read more
The mobile science lab was a life changing experience for our children this summer! Josiah failed science in school last year and the science part of the STAR test as well. He was frustrated and hated science for this reason. Josiah is a very intelligent child but for some reason science was a struggle for… read more
Partnering with MdBio Foundation not only offers an opportunity to propel and motivate the next generation of STEM visionaries, but provides MedImmune scientists and professionals a chance to support innovation in the community — inspiring students through their own experiences. It makes a difference!
We are very excited to partner with MdBio Foundation to support the MXLab. At Northrop Grumman Corporation we’re dedicated to fostering the next generation of STEM professionals. The commitment and the quality and the rigor of MdBio’s content has us very excited to connect with the organization and be able to bring classroom learning to life.
This is such a golden opportunity for us. We talk about science and a lot of times we are playing make-believe scientists in the classroom, but when they’re here they ARE scientists. They are doing real science and that’s just such an impactful moment for them.
MdBio Foundation does all of the hard work in marketing, communicating and then working with the students to get them excited about STEM. I am honored to support your mission and speak to students about my career path. Unlike so many other projects or endeavors, the results of STEM education span generations.
ATLAS is awesome. I came here today thinking about a career in either IT or mechanical engineering. After talking to some people, I’m definitely leaning more toward mechanical engineering. I definitely plan on going to the next event in the spring.
ATLAS is a great event. I brought my Girl Scout troop today, and these girls are 9th through 12th grades. I told them what STEM is and they were excited to see what career opportunities are available to them. We had four other events to choose from today, and the girls chose this one.
MdBio’s events help students realize that science is a friendly environment, and give students a chance to see all of the STEM career options they have, which can be cool and fun. Students can see that they really can work with all of the things they learn about in class.
I want to be a veterinarian, and I got information about vet schools and about what being a veterinarian is like. This event has been really fun for me and my friends.
My son is in 10th grade, so it’s time that he start thinking about what he wants to do for a career. The ATLAS event is perfect for him. He was able to explore a lot of different careers and talk to colleges about what types of programs they offer. He’s thinking about aerospace engineering, so…
It allowed me to see that even as a high-schooler I can do research and do something useful. It also gives me more motivation to study science and biology.
Through the BioGENEius Challenge, students gain an appreciation for the fascinating aspects of scientific experimentation and the tremendous potential for biotechnology to continue to address some of the most pressing issues of our time.
At a time when the U.S. is struggling to engage students in the sciences, the BioGENEius Challenge has found a way to encourage those students who are excited about biotechnology to reach for the next level.
Rapid advances in science and technology demand educational programs like MdBioLab that are responsive and accessible.
Women are an underrepresented population in the sciences. With activities like [the MdBioLab] women can become more confident going into science careers.
The MDBioLab is an outstanding example of innovative science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs that enrich our students’ education and provide them with the skills they need to compete for the jobs of tomorrow.
The excitement of feeling like a real scientist, even just a change in what they are wearing, wearing goggles and blue gloves … Being allowed to handle this kind of situation makes them more responsible for the work because they are now intrigued in doing it and they feel respected and responsible since we gave them…
We want to do our part by helping MdBio Foundation prepare the next generation of scientists right here in Baltimore.
