A study touts the wide range of biotech jobs in the Madison area; meanwhile, a Middleton High School biotechnology teacher, Kathryn Eilert, has won a $10,000 national award.
Meanwhile, Eilert was honored as the nation's top biotech educator by the Biotechnology Institute, an Arlington, Va., nonprofit organization that promotes biotech education in elementary, middle and high schools. Eilert received the award, sponsored by Genzyme Corp. and Invitrogen Corp., at the group's education conference Saturday.
Since 1995, Eilert has engaged Middleton High School seniors in debates on bioethics and genetic testing, taught them good laboratory practices and helped them understand issues such as stem cells and cloning, often through fun activities, she said.
Students have fashioned DNA models out of nuts, bolts and pipe cleaners and have learned how to make bacteria change colors. "I want them to know that biotechnology influences their lives in many ways," Eilert said. "Science needs to be understood."
Eilert was one of eight finalists for the award from the United States and Canada, said Jeff Ghannam, director of communications for the Biotechnology Institute (a similar but separate organization from the Biotechnology Industry Organization, which is holding the Chicago convention).
