At the Delaware Biotechnology Institute, communicating science to the public is a very important part of our mission. Because we are committed to teaching the community about the innovations and discoveries of Delaware scientists and promoting a better understanding of science and technology to the next generation, we’ve implemented an initiative called Science for all Delawareans (S4DE).
Part of the S4DE initiative focuses on the tours we offer to students interested in pursuing the sciences. Approximately 500 students visit the building each year and experience life science research first hand. Our typical tour includes:
For everyone’s safety and enjoyment, our limit is 45 students maximum per tour. Because the centers are not able to take work during tour time, we can only host one tour per week. Additional students will not be accommodated without prior written agreement. We may modify, cancel, or reschedule the tour itinerary if your group is more than 15 minutes late.
To schedule a tour, please contact us by email.
*Not all groups will experience the same tour, or even all the same elements of the menu of options outlined. Tour structure will be modified to accommodate any agreed-upon time slot available to the touring group and their interests.
