BUGSS and Capital Area BioSpace (CABS) - ASM Agar Art 2017 (Workshop 1)
Sat, March 25, 2017, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT
THIS SPRING we are super excited that Baltimore Under Ground Science Space (BUGSS) and the Capital Area BioSpace (CABS) are official American Society of Microbiology (ASM) Agar Art 2017 partners! What is Agar Art you ask? It is a perfect marriage of biology and art that everyone and anyone can get into. Come to the BUGSS lab to learn about some special microbes that produce and array of beautiful and striking colors. You will be able to use the tools and instructions provided by BUGSS and CABS to create your very own living work of art on agar plates!
Best of all!? You can enter your bio-art work into a contest! The winner will receive an ASM T-shirt, a certificate, a GiantMicrobe, and his/her piece will be included in the Agar Art Gallery at ASM's Microbe meeting (in New Orleans, LA, June 1-5, 2017).
Perhaps your work has what it takes to enter the national ASM contest and win over $400 in prizes? (Of course it does!) Get more information for this contest, examples of previous winners, as well as entry for the national contest here: http://www.asm.org/index.php/public-outreach/agar-art
