Saturday Gene-iuses Day returns
The College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resource offers Gene-iuses on a Mission events for elementary aged students on 12 Saturdays beginning August 4.
Each Saturday Gene-iuses Mission brings students and their parents onto campus for 2 hours of exciting, engaging activites that encourage scientific thinking and appreciation for all things science related. Each session focuses on a specific science related theme (DNA, cells, forensics, agriculture and much more).
“The Gene-ius Day Program was created to teach the concepts of genetics in a fun, easy-to-remember way,” said Project leader Ania Wieczorek. “Each Gene-ius event is packed with hands-on experiments and activities that let students experience and enjoy science.”
The Saturday Gene-iuses sessions are a spin-off from CTAHR’s original Gene-ius Day field trips for elementary schools.
