Join us for a fun-filled day of activities, tours, and presentations exploring DNA
May 7, 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
With the support of the National Human Genome Research Institute, Orlando Science Center presents its first ever Annual DNA Day Celebration! Learn all about the amazing molecule during this daylong event featuring activities, speakers, tours and presentations that explore DNA through four basic ideas: health, research, everyday life, and careers.
See your own genetic blueprint, wonder at the amazing Gallery of Genetic DNArt and witness genetic science unwrap a 3000 year old forensic case in Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs on the giant screen of the Dr. Phillips CineDome. In addition to all this, you'll have a chance to meet and interview real working geneticists! Guest speakers and Skype interviews will be going on throughout the day.
DNA is common to every living thing, yet makes each unique in its own way. Advancing technologies open scientists to new understanding of this amazing molecule, and its potential for careers of the future. The Orlando Science Center’s program is designed to excite and ‘edutain’ the public about DNA and science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education.
