Creating a Space for Genomics in All Classrooms
Learning about the science and ethics of genomics (just a fancy word for all your DNA) in the classroom has taken off. Working with science, history, and social studies educators from middle school, high school, community colleges, and Tribal Colleges, we creatively bring cutting-edge genomic science to students across the nation and create spaces for difficult classroom conversations about privacy, racism, ethics, and identity.
