ABSTRACT:
A multidisciplinary high school education, currently non-existent, will better prepare students for undergraduate careers and to acquire prerequisite skills needed to face the challenges of 21st century careers and compete in the global job market. This presentation features the attempts of the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) scientists with support from the Buhl Foundation, to help high school teachers, as an inter-disciplinary group, develop an innovative curriculum in Bioinformatics introducing multidisciplinary education through the study of computerized gene databases and linking them to biochemical gene expressions. This course was piloted and remains installed, in three Pittsburgh school districts in the academic year 2009-2010 and resulted in a first ever Bioinformatics Summer internship for high school students at PSC.
