BioHack Academy is a unique international 10-week program, during which participants build and use their own biolabs. It was held four times so far, in collaboration with partners in South-America, USA, Asia and Europe. We are now seeking new partner labs for the fifth series, starting January 30th, 2017.
Participants learn how grow their own fuel, food, filaments, farmaceuticals, ;fragances, fungi and much more funky bio stuff. Whether it’s a new type of bio ink, bio polymer or bio fuel, we’ll show you how to grow it and share the results with others. By the end of the course your Fablab, Maker/Hackspace or whatever machine shop will be turned into a biolab.
All partner lab coordinators are invited to join a one-week bootcamp in November 2017. We will review the Academy curriculum, test the tools, equipment and protocols and, perhaps most importantly, get to know each other. You will also receive all the electrical components for the machines and samples of the biological strains.
