Last year, the biology folks at the University of Kansas adapted a successful program from the University of North Carolina: DNA Day. The teachers I talked to loved the program and so did their students. Don’t miss out.
Sign-ups for Kansas DNA Day 2016 are now open! Kansas DNA Day features graduate and advanced undergrad students in the biological sciences traveling to local high schools to give interactive lessons on the applications of genetics and genomic sequencing. The event will be held the week of April 21st. We currently have ambassadors ready for the greater Kansas City, Lawrence, Manhattan and Wichita areas so if you are a high school science teacher in one of these areas, sign up to have ambassadors come visit your classroom!
