NC DNA Day Outcomes:

In 2012, over 135 scientist ambassadors visited 102 high schools around the state. However, the number of schools that applied to participate was far greater than the number of ambassadors. In order to reach more schools, our goal is to recruit more DNA Ambassadors in 2012. Our vision is to serve more rural schools that have limited exposure to career scientists. Join us in celebrating NC DNA Day!
