How can I participate?

Science teachers must attend a DNA Learning Center DNA barcoding training workshop to participate. Once trained, teachers can register for a Teacher/Mentor Portal account where they can create and manage student teams, submit proposals, receive alerts, request equipment/reagents, and sign up for Open Labs.

Trained teachers can mentor teams of 2-4 students in grades 9-12. Teachers must be willing to spend sufficient time with student teams to bring projects to completion. Programs begin with project proposal submission in early fall and conclude at project symposia in late May or early June.
