JBEI participates at “Summer of Synbio”

August 05, 2016

Building with BioJBEI collaborated with Engineering Biology Research Consortium (EBRC) at the launch of the “summer of synbio” at The Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose this past week. The activity was part of the Building with Biology project, a nationwide effort to bring synthetic biologists and the public together at science museums across the US this summer.

JBEI volunteers, Leanne Chan, Kosuke Iwai and Phil Gach connected with the public to de-mystify biological engineering and its growing relevance in everyday life. They shared synbio concepts through fun, hands-on learning kits and engaged in two-way conversations about building the future with biology.
