DNA Day began as a way to build relationships between high school classrooms and scientists – and it’s been really successful! Now we want to expand those relationships into something more than just a once a year visit. Classrooms that participate in the CONNECT program have a scientist ambassador that not only visits in-person on DNA Day, but participates in interactive video sessions with students throughout the school year. CONNECT classrooms have the opportunity to get to know a scientist, learn about science as a career, and have input from that scientist on the things they learn all year long.
If you are a teacher interested in finding a CONNECT ambassador for your classroom, or a researcher interested in getting involved, email us for more information.
