Everyone likes music... everyone likes movies... everyone likes some kind of art...why not science?...Is science really boring?

Just try it!

 

Want to learn more about biotechnology? We provide hands-on biotechnology workshops to schools and individuals.

Want to get your hands dirty? We provide space for DIY biologists.

Check out our growing list of workshops.

These workshops are accessible to educators, elementary, middle and high school students as well as college-aged students discerning a career in the life sciences. This can also prove valuable to unemployed or underemployed individuals interested in learning new skills, or just members of our community curious about life sciences.

 

Are you already a bioscientist? Have a small project you want to tackle? Just don't have enough time or students.We can help you...for free! Visit our "BIOrphan project" service description.

Our workshops will help making life sciences more accessible to the public, promote active learning and help develop students' imagination and creativity. This is not just "education in science" but "education through science"(1), that goes beyond just science literacy.

“ I beseech you to take interest in these sacred domains so expressively called laboratories. Ask that there be more and that they be adorned for these are temples of the future, wealth and well-being. It is here that humanity will grow, strengthen and improve. Here, humanity will learn to read progress and individual harmony in the work of nature..."
