Join us during the Biohack- and Fab Academy Show

Come Thursday, June 13, Waag Futurelab will present the BioHack and Fab Academy Show! During the festive conclusion of the two courses, you are welcome to admire the participants' works and presentations. If you are toying with the idea of participating in one of our Academies, you can ask questions and get a taste of the atmosphere this evening.

Please register via this page, as space is limited. 

Fab Academy, in brief

A 20-week programme in which you learn the art of making (almost) everything. In Waag's Fab Lab, you get to work with various (digital fabrication) tools and - under expert guidance - develop skills in electronics, programming, design and turning concepts into tangible objects. You can use practical experience to bring ideas to life in your prototypes.

BioHack Academy in brief

In the BioHack Academy, you will dive into shaping the future of biotechnology and learn how to build your own bio-lab, how to grow living 'factories', and how to code and document your experiments. Think about growing biomaterials like fuel, food, filaments, drugs, fragrances, fungi and more. 

What is Waag Academy?

Learning by doing. What better way to prepare for the future than by designing it yourself with your own protocol or artwork? Besides traditional schooling, other methods exist to develop skills and prepare us for the future. At Waag Academy, making is central, and you can use technological developments to explore its effects on our daily lives.
