RSVP for Building with Biology now!
Charlottesville Open Bio Labs is honored to be a host site of the national, NSF funded Building with Biology project!
The Building with Biology project is a community of informal science educators, researchers, and scientists dedicated to developing innovative resources, practices and processes to build the capacity of the field to use public engagement with science (PES) activities to extend STEM learning about science, technology, and societal implications through public and scientist dialogue about synthetic biology. Find out more at their website here.
This family-friendly event starts at 11am on Saturday, August 27th, and lasts until 4pm. At 2:30pm, we will begin a forum discussion geared towards adults surrounding the question: Should we engineer the mosquito? Our panel consists of scientists, business owners, community leaders, and environmentalists and the discussion is bound to be an intriguing one!
