For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. (Romans 1:20, ESV)
One of God’s incredible biological designs is the DNA alphabet of life. If you are interested in exploring the basics of DNA, genetics, and heredity, then Explore Genetics is for you! Join us as we examine the volumes of information God placed inside every plant, animal, and human in the beginning of creation.
Open to students in grades 6–12 (ages 11 and up).
Explore Genetics is scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The Explore Days program is on a four-year rotating schedule. Each Explore Day includes a minimum of four hands-on, interactive sessions. The yearly topics are provided in the schedule below.
Please keep in mind that some of our activities are contingent upon weather.
