Molecular Biology Professional Development for Teachers at JABSOM
(Presented in partnership with JABSOM’s Center for Cardiovascular Research)

For Educators

AHEC has a wide range of programs available to assist educators. It is our goal that these programs will help teachers inspire their students to love science and encourage them to pursue health careers. For more information on the programs below, please contact us at ahec@hawaii.edu or (808) 692-1060.

Speakers Bureau

We have a database of over 100 health professionals who are excited about the opportunity to visit K-12 classrooms and school fairs to discuss their career with students. Teachers just tell us the date/time/which health profession they are interested in and we take care of the logistics. (All Grades)

Tours of JABSOM

We coordinate school tours of SimTiki, the Cancer Center, the Anatomy Lab and the Center for Clinical Skills. A “Discover JABSOM” scavenger hunt activity is also available.

Hawaii Teachers Collaboration Forum on Science and Health Education

A joint effort of the University of Hawai`i STEM Pre-Academy and the HiSCI program at JABSOM, this forum is designed to build the K-12 Hawai`i teacher community by 1) sharing information about what resources teachers need (which the HiSCI program may have funds to purchase), 2) giving teachers access to community program options and to connect with community partners, 3) notifying users of STEM-related events for students and teachers, 4) posting information on professional development opportunities, 5) making your STEM-related lesson plans available to other teachers, and 6) anything else that helps teachers communicate and work together (please let us know if you have ideas!) To gain access to the site, you must register for a username and password. For more information, please contact kirawa@hawaii.edu
