Excerpt: Biotechnology is defined as “the commercial application of living organisms or their products, which involves the deliberate manipulation of their DNA molecules”. It is a term that few people had heard of ten years ago. Most biotechnology (Molecular Biology, Biochemical Engineering, Biochemistry, and Genetics) teaching takes place in upper-level undergraduate and graduate Molecular Biology courses or research laboratories. However, today it is a rapidly growing field at the cutting edge of recent scientific developments that is appropriate for the high school student. Issues such as genetically altered food and beverages, options on planning a family, stem cell research approval, are all related to biotechnology. As a result of the growing awareness by the public today, biotechnology is fast becoming a household word. Understanding of these topics should accompany the awareness. This is especially true for students taking science courses at the high school level. The following Biotechnology course offering will allow you to become familiar with the basic concepts and technologies that are appropriate for classroom introduction to high school students. You will also be introduced to the growing academic and career opportunities for your students in this field.
