Teachers from Arlington BioSMART High School in St. Paul visited MSI on September 23. Arlington is a magnet school with a focus in science, math, and technology. Their program, BioSMART (Biology, Science, Math, Academic Rigor, and Technology), introduces students to careers in biotech industries.
The teachers saw a presentation about MSI and the research being done here and toured the LMVL and the machine room. They also gave a presentation to MSI staff members about the school and its programs. MSI staff members are working to establish working relationships with secondary schools in order to reach students and give them an understanding of the kinds of science and technology careers they can prepare for at the University of Minnesota.
