Teacher Opportunities

While our outreach educational student programs provide a wonderful glimpse into the field of genetics, we are only able to be with the students for a day. Teachers have such a great influence on student achievement and career exploration, and we want to support teachers all year long, not only on the day of a classroom visit or field trip.

The Greenwood Genetic Center offers many programs to enhance teacher education. During the summer, we provide exposure to the latest technologies with hands-on workshops.
