In February, the first BioHack Academy started at the Waag and on location at partner labs. After completing this first BioHack Academy you can grow your own fuel, food, filaments, farmaceuticals, fragrances, 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.
The participants are now very busy building their own 'BioFactory' and learn how to design, grow and extract their own biomaterials using only Open Source hardware they fabricate themselves. To give an impression of the activities we selected ten images in the above gallery. More photos of our Open Wetlab can be found here.
The lessons and the results of the Biohack Academy are recorded in several ways:
We are now busy preparing the second BioHack Academy that will run this Fall.
