Genetics Education & Outreach Network (GEON)

GEON is a network of genetics professionals who is willing to assist K-12 science teachers when teaching genetics. Teachers can search for GEON members in their area who will then go to their classrooms to speak or present to students.


The Geneticist-Educator Network of Alliances (GENA)

The aim of the GENA Project is to explore ways how a professional society can play a positive role in the career development of both junior (pre-tenure) and senior (post-tenure) level genetics faculty. A network of geneticist-educator alliances is developed to design teaching strategies related to standards and misconceptions in genetics.
