Welcome to the site for NCABR’s short film, “Heal, Feed, Sustain: How Biotechnology Can Help Save the World.” We think the film will have a major positive impact on how middle and high school students learn about biotech.
It features three students, selected from a pool of 100 auditions, who travel to biotech centers in North Carolina — BASF Plant Science, Novozymes and the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine — to get an up-close look at the amazing research happening there.
With a total running time of under 25 minutes, teachers can show the entire film in one class period. It has been reviewed and evaluated by more than a dozen middle and high school classes throughout the state.
It also features a free teacher guide with 7 student activities, activity extensions, a curriculum connection matrix and more background information about biotechnology.
Funding generously was provided by the North Carolina Biotechnology Center.
