K-12 Genetics Outreach
We are a group of faculty researchers and graduate students who volunteer to visit local grade schools to bring the excitement of scientific discovery into North Carolina classrooms. We have created demonstrations to capture the imagination of the students, their parents and their teachers. Our group visits student classrooms to present a hands-on based learning experience in the area of genetics and developmental biology. We typically visit seventh through ninth grade classrooms, but have even visited a preschool classroom of 4-year olds to teach about the plant life cycle and extracted DNA with third graders.
