The goal of the St. Georges Technical High School Biotechnology Program would be to contribute to the nurturing of the Delaware biotechnology industry by providing a critical mass of high school graduates that will be well prepared for entry-level laboratory positions and for the challenges of post-secondary training.
Students will have opportunities to master advanced content in biology and chemistry and to master basic laboratory techniques and procedures, as well as opportunities to maintain and operate the more common instruments and equipment used in a biology laboratory.
Mastery of proper safety procedures, cleanliness, precision, and care when performing laboratory operations will be expected of all students. They will be expected to accurately analyze scientific information and data and to present facts and ideas graphically, orally, and in writing at a quality level consistent with generally accepted standards of the biotechnology community.
Students entering the program must be aware of the academic expectations associated with success both in the program and in the biotechnology industry and must be aware that a demonstrated mastery of science and math content standards will be necessary for success in the program.
While it is expected that entry-level, laboratory technician positions will be available to highly qualified program completers, students should be aware that completion of a post-secondary program in biotechnology, at least at the technical/community college level, is often required for entry-level positions in this field and that upward career mobility in the biotechnology industry will require a minimum of a Bachelor's Degree.
