The NISE Network runs a series of free online workshops to increase the number of professional development opportunities available to our partners, and create more channels for partners to share their work and learn from each other directly.
Activities and Conversations about Synthetic Biology: The Building with Biology Project
Tuesday, December 8, 2015

Learn how you can get involved in a national conversation about synthetic biology! In this online brown-bag conversation, we'll present a general introduction to the fast-growing field of biological engineering and describe a NSF-funded project that brings together professionals from the scientific community and informal science educators to create conversations between synthetic biology (or a related field) scientists and members of the public around the societal implications of this topic. Presenters will share upcoming project details, including the fabrication of 200 Building with Biology free physical kits that will be distributed nationwide to support summer 2016 Building with Biology Events and Conversations. Join us and bring your questions!
