"Budding Biotech" Program Motivates the Future Biotech Workforce

A partnership between the Owensboro Museum of Science and History the Owensboro Community and Technical College and the Western Kentucky Botanical Garden is motivating young students in the Owensboro region to explore careers in biotech and health care.

The "Budding Biotech" partnership is hosting a camp at the museum for elementary school age students and an biotech expo for middle school students on June 10 from 6-8 pm at OCTC. The programming is funded through a grant from the Owensboro Medical Health System.

"We believe it is our responsibility as a community to foster an understanding of the growing biotech discipline and alert our citizens to biotech and health care educational and employment opportunities in the region," said the organization's website. "In doing so we create tomorrow’s scientists, doctors and health innovators, improving the health of our community and the global community through education"
