DNA Learning Center NYC @ City Tech

DNALC NYC is now open! The new lab, a collaboration with the City University of New York (CUNY), is located at New York City College of Technology (City Tech) in Brooklyn. Currently, there is one 32-student lab classroom available for field trips, but we are rapidly expanding—in spring 2020 we will have a six-lab facility available at CUNY in Brooklyn for educators across the tri-state area. Dolan DNA Learning Center

DNALC NYC brings all the great molecular genetics labs offered at the Dolan DNALC, in a location more accessible to schools in Brooklyn, Queens, lower Manhattan, and central New Jersey. Staffed by veteran DNALC educators, DNALC NYC will offer cutting-edge field trip experiences for middle and high school students, as well as summer camps.
