National DNA Day commemorates the completion of the Human Genome Project in April 2003 and the discovery of the double helix of DNA in 1953. Bring your students to celebrate the historic milestone at the Connecticut Science Center April 25-27. Join us on a journey to learn about genomics and how it influences
the world around us. Enjoy hands-on programming that explores the basics of genetics and inheritance.
