Hingham High School Recognized as MassBioEd Innovative School of the Year
March 22, 2017 (CAMBRIDGE, MA) – The Massachusetts Biotechnology Education Foundation (MassBioEd) announced today that Hingham High School has been named as this year’s Joshua Boger Innovative School of the Year. Hingham High School is being honored for its commitment in engaging students at all levels through hands-on, lab-based biotechnology experiences.
Hingham High School was selected as a MassBioEd BioTeach school in 2009. Since then, Hingham High School has implemented new biotechnology-based curricula, grown the AP and Honors biology classes and added a new biotechnology class for its students.
Hingham High School’s commitment to biotechnology education has made a measurable impact: the school has experienced increased student enrollment in higher level life sciences classes and has seen an increase in students choosing to study life sciences-related fields in college.
“Hingham High School’s commitment to bringing cutting-edge biotechnology experiences to its students is inspiring,” said Michelle Mischke, Director of Biotechnology Education Programs at MassBioEd. “We at MassBioEd look forward to supporting their continued success.”
The Joshua Boger Innovative School of the Year Award was established by the MassBioEd Foundation to honor a Massachusetts school that has distinguished itself through exemplary progressive biotechnology educational programming.
The award will be presented at a luncheon ceremony at the MassBio Annual Meeting on Thursday, March 30th at the Royal Sonesta Hotel, 40 Edwin Lane Boulevard, Cambridge, MA.
