We all have teachers who made a difference and the #BuildItForward campaign is a chance to say “thank you” in a way that will benefit those life-changing teachers AND any students lucky enough to be learning from them now.

Pledge $45 or more and a signed copy of the BioBuilder book will be sent to that inspirational teacher, with a note from the authors recognizing your generosity and gratitude.

The BioBuilder textbook that was recently published by O’Reilly Media has been called “accessible” “empowering” and a “must read” by early reviewers.

Our textbook is HERE!! From O’Reilly with digital support or on Amazon.

O’Reilly, publisher of the BioBuilder textbook, also ran some fantastic articles about how our book fits into the field and about about using Biology for teaching the next generation of coders.

The lovely cover photo on our annual report comes from a new program we ran for the first time in 2016: our High School Apprenticeship Challenge. Students with few other ways into our bioeconomy spent 8 weeks in a lab-readiness program with us in advance of a paid summer internship.

Check out the video and some press coverage about that new program that we will be repeating and expanding in 2017!
