Biohacking workshop 25-26th Aug @ Labitat – UPDATE, PROGRAM AND INFO.

This weekend we are hosting a biohaker workshop.

There is still a bit of room for more participants, and you are welcome to spontaneously drop-by and also bring a friend. People signed up in advance will have priority to space and equipment. Price 150 kr.

We are looking forward to fruitful discussions, to tinker with technology,  -biology, play and do a lot of biohacking. There are a few introducing talks, but this is a hacking session, and the workshop is mostly open and we are very flexible with our program outline.  You will have an opportunity to work yourself and get hands-on with biohacking. We are providing several experiments and topics and then you can decide where to specialize.

If you have worked on any biology or related electronics projects that could be fun to share and show, please do bring them. As well if you have any projects or ideas you’d like to start working on and get some input to, bring them as well.
