On August 13, Illumina Shanghai Family Open Day was held in Illumina’s Shanghai office. Over 160 colleagues and families joined the fun summer party!

The office, where Illumina employees meet for daily meetings, trainings, and experiments, was decorated for adults and kids to unleash imagination and creativity.

In addition to a series of fun STEM activities and games, the kids put on lab coats and goggles to experience life as a scientist. Employee volunteers conducted a banana DNA extraction experiment and the kids visited the lab to experience the wonders of DNA!
