Museum night: Do-it-Yourself Healthcare Clinic

At Waag Society we prefer to be our own bosses, which is why we remain indefatigable advocates of maker culture in science and industry.

Bring your curiosity with you when you visit Waag Society's DIY Healthcare Clinic and discover all the DIY tips, tricks, and gadgets you can use to improve your health. Get ready to hack yourself into a fitter, prettier, and more social human.

Come in for a consultation while you relax with a spirulina shot, or put on a lab coat and start experimenting. Train your brain to relax during stressful situations, make your own antibiotics from tulip bulbs, design your own finger splint (and let the 3D printer bring it to life), or visit our drugstore for some DIY beauty products—including our popular kombucha face masks. We'll help you get acquainted with the exciting world of DIY-healthcare.

Not sure what treatment you need? Not to worry. You can drop by our reception desk when you arrive for a DNA swab and a quick body check. As an added bonus, we'll help you extract your DNA to take home as a souvenir. Interested? Come to the museumnight November 5th.
