In April 2018, the DNA Labs on the Road attended the annual 3-day meeting of the Amgen Biotech Experience (ABE) in Dublin. All locations where the ABE programme is active were present. The purpose was to learn from each other and to help each other with the ABE programme.
The ‘Reizende DNA-Labs’ (DNA labs on the road) are mobile practicals that educate high school students about DNA, genes, genomics, and the latest research techniques. The project has been up and running since 2006 and over 200,000 high school pupils have already participated in the practicals. The project is supported by the DTL learning programme. The DNA Labs on the Road collaborate with the Amgen Biotech Experience to educate Dutch high school students about biotechnology.
