Biotech High School
About the Program
In 2015, through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s Magnet Schools of America program, Fairchild partnered with Miami Dade County Public School to develop BioTECH Senior High School: the first Conservation Biology High School with a focus on Botany and Zoology. This collaborative plant science program offers novel experiences, is integrated into students’ school days, and counts towards graduation requirements. Students and teachers assist graduate students and early-career scientists in completing their botanical research. Students have access to the Garden’s living collection 7 days a week and can also work to earn Volunteer Hours.
