Michigan DNA Day is an annual event where scientists from the state of Michigan visit local high schools to present interactive, hands-on lessons about genetics, genomics, and biotechnology. MI DNA Day provides a unique opportunity for high school students to meet and interact with early-career scientists, which often clarifies misconceptions of what a scientist looks like and breaks down barriers for students to follow scientific career paths.
Scientist ambassadors also discuss their own ongoing research with students and share exciting career opportunities in science and biotechnology. MI DNA Day allows early-career scientists to share their passion for science with students, fostering a spirit of public engagement leading to continued participation in science outreach throughout their careers.
REACT is a one-day workshop for Michigan K-12 STEM teachers at the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor campus). This event provides K-12 STEM teachers free exposure to the impactful research being done at the University of Michigan through focused student talks, lab tours, and hands-on demonstrations by student organizations.
