Teachers and students working in COMB's SciTech Center

The SciTech Education Program at the University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute, (UMBI) Center of Marine Biotechnology (COMB) offers each year more than 9,000 students and teachers from local school systems unique "hands-on" experiences in marine science and biotechnology.

The Virtual University Education (VIRTUE) Program has established an international network for scientific collaboration among Maryland, Göteborg, and Bergen local schools.  In the ongoing international Aquatic Ecosystem Biodiversity Project (AEBP), and in conjunction with SciTech, students are taking biofouling samples from plates placed in the Chesapeake Bay, Baltic Sea, and Norwegian fjords respectively and jointly analyzing the results via video conferencing and interactive web sites.
