Spring Field Trip Update

Author: Amy Stark

As of March 11, 2020, the University of Notre Dame has suspended all in-class instruction through April 13 for pubic health reasons related to COVID19.

If you had previously scheduled a field trip prior to April 13, we will work with you to figure out if we can accommodate another date or if we will need to wait until next year.

Support the DNA Center on Notre Dame Day

Author: Amy Stark

During the Annual Notre Dame Day, the University is giving away $1 million dollars based on the votes collected by groups across campus. For a $10 gift to the DNA Center, you get 5 votes. Last year, each vote was worth ~14 so a $10 gift results in ~$75 to the DNA Center. We use that money to subsidize lab costs and offer scholarships to our summer camps. DNA Day coincidentally overlaps with Notre Dame Day so we encourage you to combine the effect of these two days!…
