Genspace – BioMaker Lab Tour
Genspace is a community biology laboratory, sometimes called a biomaker lab or a biohacker space, in South Brooklyn, New York where anyone can learn the fundamental scientific concepts and lab skills they need to meaningfully engage with the life sciences — including biology, biotechnology, microbiology, genetics, and related subjects. Biomakers are scientists, artists, designers, and entrepreneurs, and in our lab they hack lab gear, create new sustainable biomaterials, and explore the ethical and social issues of emerging global technologies. In this session, you’ll get a tour of the Genspace lab, see objects, materials, and technology that Genspace members have made. We’ll talk about the minimal gear you need to get started with basic biotechnology experiments, and the types of organisms that are easy-to-grow and safe to use in a wide range of settings.

Let’s ALL StickTogether!
StickTogether Sticker Mosaic Puzzle Poster Kits are the inclusive, community-building, activity with a beautiful reward. The image starts as a mystery, just a blank canvas, and builds as everyone ‘sticks together’ to reveal the image. StickTogether was launched at MakerFaire in 2015 and was created for the Maker Community. Since 2015 Librarians, Media Specialists, Makerspaces, Teachers, Senior Facilities, Special Needs Programs and Community / Faith groups have fueled our growth, helping to spread the StickTogether Effect. In this workshop we will review the StickTogether Story and Product, we will share a few fun, pixel-related activities that you can use to add an extra dimension of fun while creating your StickTogether poster. We will end with all participants coming together around a Virtual Stickerboard which we will create as a group, virtually. There will be time for questions, feedback and conversation while we are ALL ‘sticking together!’
