Jumpstarting STEM Careers

Join us to hear about the Biotechnology Program that is a partnership between the Dane County Youth Apprenticeship and BioPharmaceutical Technology Center Institute (BTCI) in Fitchburg. The program offers high school junior and senior youth apprentices an intensive work and technical training experience in the biotechnology field, along with core employability and safety skills.

Students may continue on to a second year to further develop testing skills and become proficient in a variety of bioscience tests and applications dependent on their worksite setting. Learn how to implement a similar program for students or your business today.
