Sustainability Welcome Letter, Design Choices Tips, and Planning Guide

Welcome to the SustainABLE project! These materials will introduce you to the SustainABLE Kit and its contents, and help you begin to plan your sustainability event. The included planning guide offers tips on finding and training collaborators and volunteers, marketing materials and suggestions, as well as a list of additional resources for a successful event. The Design Choices document will guide you through some of the ways to make the event itself a model of sustainability!

Building with Biology promotional materials (Digital copies of ads, posters, and banners)

These files contain digital copies of a wide variety of promotional materials for your Building with Biology event. They include multiple formats of ready-to-print and customizable ads, posters, and banners.

Building with Biology reference packet

This is a collection of colorful, printable reference sheets on the basics of synthetic biology and related fields of study. Using illustrations and simple language, the sheets describe the essentials of genes and DNA, traditional agricultural breeding, genetic engineering, and synthetic biology. These sheets will be useful for many of the Building with Biology activities, as well as for general background on the subject.

Event Passports

These "passports" can be used at your Building with Biology event to help visitors keep track of everything they've done there—they can collect stamps to mark when they've talked to a scientist, asked a question about synthetic biology, shared an idea on the graffiti wall, or talked to a volunteer about the things they like or don't like about synthetic biology. The passport challenges visitors to collect as many stamps as possible.

Building with Biology Event Planning and Marketing Guide, Press Release, and Photo Release Forms

This is a detailed guide for planning and promoting your Building with Biology event. The guide covers each step of preparing for your event, recruiting and training volunteers and scientist partners, facilitating conversations during the event, and evaluating the event afterwards.

The press releases are customizable, so you can include your institution's name, the date and location of your event, and any other additional relevant information.
