Join us for our BUGSS Lab Meet-up on Friday February 17th 7-9pm!
In this meeting we will be introducing our new Member Community Lab Meet-ups!
Based on a survey of our members, and potential members, we have decided to initiate lab meet-ups that will focus on a few different community projects. Not surprisingly, our BUGSS community is interested in ALL THE THINGS! Meaning we really had a hard time zeroing in on just one topic because of the interest and curiosity in biology that spans across many disciplines. We want to take that interest and make it a reality! Let’s meet-up to learn, tinker, and explore!
· Members will enter into a “Project Team” (or teams if interested in more than 1) centered on a topic of interest.
o Bioreactor/lab- equipment build project
o Environmental/Ecology project
o Estrogen sensor project
o Mushroom project
o Bio-printing project
· Monthly meet-ups for each project will be scheduled, but teams can arrange to meet up more frequently if they would like.
· Teams will be asked to submit a proposal (details given during this meeting) to WIN a BUGSS Community Project Award for money that could be used for supplies necessary to advance the project.
Not a member yet but really want to join a community project, or at least learn more? Come to this meeting to make connections! Can't make this meeting? Let us know and we can add you on Skype or take your information for future meet-ups (please contact Sarah - firstname.lastname@example.org). These projects will be valuable for our BUGSS community to work as a team to tinker, learn, explore, and accomplish some fantastic projects with biology!
