NC DNA Day Outcomes:

2016 DNA Day cumulative map

In 2018, 170 scientist ambassadors visited 164 high schools around the state. However, the number of schools that applied to participate was far greater than the number of ambassadors. To reach more schools, our goal is to continually recruit more DNA Ambassadors. Our vision is to serve more rural schools that have limited exposure to career scientists. Join us in celebrating NC DNA Day!
