SEE to develop programs, workshops, camp components, and exhibits to inspire youth exploration & opportunities in Regenerative Manufacturing & Biofabrication
Manchester– The SEE Science Center has joined the public-private Manufacturing USA initiative, called the Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute (ARMI) to inspire youth to explore opportunities in Regenerative Manufacturing & Biofabrication.
“We often see a disconnect with what students see as science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) courses and how they then translate learning into what they think are potential careers,” said Susan Howland, Executive Director at SEE adding, “As a member of ARMI|BioFabUSA, and with help from other members, we will work to bridge that gap and ensure that students understand the incredible potential available to them with the formation of a brand new industry called Biofabrication.”
Headquartered in Manchester, New Hampshire ARMI|BioFabUSA is the 12th Manufacturing USA Institute, bringing together a consortium of over 100 partner organizations from industry, government, academia and the non-profit sector to develop next-generation manufacturing processes and technologies for cells, tissues and organs.
A recent ARMI|BiFabUSA member, SEE Science Center is an interactive learning center established to promote the understanding, enjoyment and achievements of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). With over 40,000+ visitors a year, SEE is a member of the Association of Science and Technology Center and its programs offer concrete interactive experiences in an informal learning environment. All SEE programs offer hands-on components that provide an opportunity for students to explore STEM.
The SEE Science Center is the first organization of its kind to become a member of ARMI|BioFabUSA.
