SE3D RECEIVES UC 'g' SUBJECT REQUIREMENT COURSE APPROVAL
Santa Clara, CA, March 6, 2018 – SE3D, a company leading innovation in bioscience education and technology, announced today that its Introduction to Bioprinting Technology college preparatory course has been approved for the University of California “g" subject requirement. The subject requirement is one of three requirements needed to enter UC as a freshman.
UC and CSU admissions evaluators refer to each California high school’s "a-g" course list when reviewing student applications for admission. In addition to verifying the accuracy of the academic information provided, admissions evaluators use the course list to understand how the applicant has taken advantage of available courses at the student’s high school. This provides a fairer review of the applicant’s achievements ‘in context’ to their learning environment.
SE3D’s Introduction to Bioprinting Technology course provides an overview of 3D bioprinting, which is used as a unifying theme to explore its principal technologies, processes, and various applications in the life sciences while covering a variety of fundamental biology concepts. Students will learn about aspects of 3D bioprinting through a series of readings, instructor-led lectures, discussions, and hands-on experimentation using the r3bEL bioprinter, a desktop 3D bioprinter designed for educational use. The course is divided into four core modules: bioprinting, biomaterials, biotechnology, and green technology.
These overarching themes are used to explore various theoretical concepts in the context of 3D bioprinting, ranging from enzymatic reactions to drug delivery. Relevant industry applications are discussed, while promoting critical skills such as experimental design and analytical methods.
