Program Background

The Amgen Biotech Experience began nearly 30 years ago through a unique collaboration of Amgen scientists and educators with a passion for sharing the joy of science and discovery. With the vision to bring the excitement of biotechnology to the fingertips of students, they developed a robust curriculum that is now available in 20 regions across the globe. In 2013, the Amgen Foundation joined forces with Education Development Center, Inc., a global nonprofit organization with deep experience and expertise in science education, to establish a Program Office to support and strengthen the program worldwide.

Program curriculum, professional development, and all materials needed are provided free of charge

Each year, ABE reaches more than 80,000 students and over 1,000 teachers

A total of 900,000 students will have experienced ABE by 2020
