The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) recently featured the Teen Meetings Outside the Box (TeenMOB) and the Voelcker Biosciences Teacher Academy (VBTA) in ASBMB Today.
TeenMob provides graduate students and postdoctoral fellows the opportunity to engage underserved students. With funds from the ASBMB’s Outreach Seed Grant program, TeenMOB held its first outreach event, a science night for Natalia, a rural town 45 minutes outside of San Antonio, in October.
To plan the event, Director of Career Development Dr.Teresa Evans partnered with teachers from the Voelcker Biosciences Teacher Academy, a program at UTHSCSA that offers curriculum resources and professional development to science, technology, engineering and math teachers in the San Antonio area.
She also worked closely with a science teacher and VBTA member from Natalia High School, Anjali Dandona. For 2015, Evans plans to build more of these relationships with teachers in the San Antonio area through her collaborations with the VBTA and run outreach events at their schools.
