The age of personal biotechnology is upon us! Biology has become a medium for design and creativity, and it is now up to us to shape its applications. After completing the BioHack Academy you will learn to grow your own fuel, food, filaments, farmaceuticals, fragrances, fungi and much more funky bio stuff at home. We will teach you how to join the bio revolution and build your own mini Bio Lab using a Fablab, Maker/Hackspace or other shared machine shop.
The program is a hands-on bootcamp. Learn how to design, grow and extract your own biomaterials using only Open Source hardware you fabricate yourself. By the end of the course participants will be turned into fully equipped biohackers, capable of growing a broad range of biomaterials. Ready to continue production independently at home or at a makerspace.
