NC Educators Get "Impact" Magazine Free

North Carolina science educators and their students have a new way to stay informed about life-science businesses and activities around the state.

The quarterly life science magazine Impact, published in Charlotte, is now being mailed free to science teachers, guidance counselors and career and technical-education coordinators in North Carolina public and private high schools.

The free distribution is sponsored by BioNetwork, the North Carolina Community Colleges’ training initiative for the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and life science industry, and by Impact.

The current edition features BioNetwork’s seven centers in their outreach to K-12 educators and students, their support of economic development through the life sciences.

Impact also partners with the North Carolina Biotechnology Center to produce a special edition featuring companies that sponsor the N.C. Pavilion each year at the Biotechnology Industry Organization’s international convention.

Tens of thousands of life science professionals from around the world will have access to information about North Carolina bioscience at the state’s BIO 2011 pavilion June 27 to 30 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington D.C.

Sponsorship information is available at www.ncbiotech.org/bio2011 and from the Biotech Center’s marketing & public events director, Kendyle Woodard, at 549-8873.

Impact is available online at www.readimpact.com
