GGC Awarded State Funds for Outreach Education Expansion

April 4, 2017 – The Gene Machine Mobile Science Laboratory of the Greenwood Genetic Center (GGC) brings hands-on genetics educational experiences and career exploration to over 6,000 SC middle and high school students each year. But the Gene Machine is popular, and the schedule is often filled by the beginning of the school year leaving many students without the opportunity.

To help make this valuable program more accessible to all students, the SC Department of Education has allocated proviso funding of $278,000 to GGC to expand its outreach educational STEM programs for the 2016-17 and 2017-18 school years with priority to traditionally underserved districts across SC
