The Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) DNA Learning Center (DNALC) has launched a new series of fun, interactive science programs called “School Break Bio! Sessions.” They offer students a chance to get hands-on with science while they’re off from school. Topics range from crime scene forensics to fruit DNA and ancient history with Ötzi the Iceman.

School Break Bio! Sessions are designed for various age groups, ranging from 10 to 17. They are offered at City Tech in Brooklyn and the Dolan Center in Cold Spring Harbor. Sessions start tomorrow and go until mid-April. To check out the full list of events, visit the DNALC website.

The DNALC is the first and largest science center devoted entirely to public genetics education. They deliver interactive lab experiences to hundreds of thousands of students every year through in-person and virtual summer camps, field trips, and citizen science research programs.

Tickets for the first Brooklyn sessions are available now. All seats must be reserved in advance. Use the links below to register.
