Have you ever wondered what goes on at one North Carolina’s largest independent biotechnology companies? This event will get students excited about science through their participation in hands-on experiments and a tour of the facility. The work done at Biogen will come to life as students experience the tools and techniques used to discover, develop, manufacture, and commercialize innovative therapies for people living with serious neurological, autoimmune, and rare diseases. The event will end with a pizza party where the students and Biogen professionals can chat about careers in an informal setting. This event is open to girls in 6th and 7th grades.
Due to limited seating, advanced registration is required and parents are unable to participate. Please remember to wear closed-toe shoes to the event.
Please read the YWIB permission forms located here.
Please print and sign the Biogen permission form (permission form in Spanish) and bring it with you to the event or email it ahead of time to firstname.lastname@example.org. Each student and their parent/guardian will need to sign the form in order to participate.
