I am indebted to the Amgen Biotech Experience for enabling me, over all of these many years, to always prepare my students to be competitive, prepared and inspired in the field of science through their experiences with ABE. I could not provide this opportunity to my students without this program.
Camp Invention provides us, as inductees, the opportunity to inspire and challenge children through our experiences in youth and beyond. Developing future inventors, innovators and entrepreneurs, and instilling the core values of creative problem-solving, sets this camp apart from the rest. Children leave after a week with skills that will last a lifetime.

This has been the most powerful learning experience in my 28 years of teaching. The multifaceted teaching cases approach helps me more effectively address students’ misconceptions, and I’ve tightened my teaching to better facilitate student learning… Every science teacher should have the opportunity to participate in this science learning.
