BioHack Academy #3 Biofactory

On 23 February 2016, the third edition of the BioHack Academy starts, to construct the machines of a biolab. This course of 10 weekly lessons is open to a maximum of 15 persons. Learn how to design, grow and extract your own biomaterials, using only Open Source hardware you fabricate yourself. Whether it's a new type of bio ink, bio polymer or bio fuel, we'll show you how you can grow it yourself and share the results with others.

The age of personal biotechnology is upon us! Engineers have turned biology in a design discipline and it's now up to us to shape it's applications. After completing the BioHack Academy you can grow your own fuel, food, filaments, farmaceuticals, fragances, fungi and much more funky bio stuff at home. We'll teach you how to join the bio revolution and build your own biofactory using a Fablab, Maker/Hackspace or other shared machine shop.
