DNAZone is a program organized by members of CNAST that provides educational outreach to students in grades K-12. The program is intended to improve student engagement, attitudes and beliefs towards science. DNAZone attracts students to science by exposing them to modern and exciting, state-of-the art aspects of nucleic acids science. Through this program, CNAST hopes to foster students' interest in mathematics, science and engineering and their appreciation of collaboration and interdisciplinary work.
DNAZone creates interesting activities and experiments that teach fundamental concepts covered in the mathematics, science and technology curriculum of primary and secondary educational institutions in Pennsylvania. These activities utilize the interdisciplinary nature of the study of DNA and other nucleic acids.
