Amgen Biotech Experience
The DNA Labs on the Road is the Dutch site of the Amgen Biotech Experience. The Amgen Biotech Experience is a science education programme that empowers teachers to bring biotechnology into their classrooms. Its programme sites provide professional development for teachers and all the equipment for use in the classroom. The goal of the DNA labs on the Road and Amgen Biotech Experience is identical: to attract high school students to science and to empower high school teachers.
