  Dean Dittmar  9/6/2022 12:40:00 PM  

Hi Section 15 and 22 Ag Teachers-

As part of an ongoing effort to provide resources to teachers and students, NCERC (National Corn to Ethanol Research Center) hosts a “Careers in Biotechnology Job Shadowing'' program that facilitates on-site learning opportunities for high school students.  The program is a one-day event with a virtual meeting in advance.  NCERC is located at 400 University Park Drive, Edwardsville, IL 62025, on the Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville campus. 

Career opportunities in biotechnology continue to grow as the industry diversifies and expands, creating incredible long-term career options for students looking at higher education programs. The new job shadowing program allows junior- or senior-level high school students to get exposure to these careers by job shadowing full-time NCERC staff who work in our laboratories and facility on research projects on high priority topics in the biotechnology industry. 

If you have students interested, contact Jackie Hayes for more information and view website -
