DBI is pleased to announce the return of its popular school tour
program in our new home, the Ammon and Pinizzotto Biopharmaceutical Innovation Center located on UD’s STAR Campus
at 590 Avenue 1743, Newark, DE, 19713.
At the Delaware Biotechnology Institute, communicating science to the public is a important part of our mission. School tours of DBI’s facilities are one of the most popular components of the Science for all Delawareans (S4DE) program and
typically host over 300 students per year. School tours are directed towards high school and college students as well as teachers and administrators where they can learn about leading research at the institute and see first hand state-of-the-art research instrumentation.
In addition to seeing microscopes that can see beyond the diffraction limit of light or genome sequencers that read single molecules of DNA, visitors will get a career panel Q&A with scientists/graduate researchers and have a hands on lab activity.

Our typical tour includes:
Students will see state for of the art instrumentation being used in active research.
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 two tours per month. 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 at email@example.com.
*tours can sometimes be arranged for younger or older students.
**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.
