Spring 2015 Session: Biotechnology and You
Imhotep Academy introduces under-represented students (African-Americans, Hispanic, Native Americans, female) to chemistry, mathematics, marine, earth and atmospheric sciences, physics and statistics through laboratory experiments, research projects, classroom instruction and field trips. While teaching participants about the contributions of scientist and inventors from under-represented groups, Imhotep Academy builds self-confidence and self-esteem. Students in the Algebra Session rotate through three classes using Algebra as a tool for making sense of the world, solving problems, and modeling everyday numerical scenarios.
IMHOTEP is sponsored by the Biogen Idec Foundation. The mission of the Biogen Idec Foundation is to improve the quality of peoples' lives and contribute to the vitality of the communities in which Biogen Idec operates. The Foundation is committed to sparking a passion for science and discovery, supporting innovative STEM initiatives, and strengthening efforts to make science accessible to diverse populations.
