Have you ever wanted your own lab? It’s become easier to reverse-engineer lab equipment and obtain the needed supplies. In this intensive four-day camp you will build several key pieces of key equipment to take home, including an incubator, PCR machine, centrifuge, hood and gel electrophoresis box. No prior experience necessary in biology or electronics. You will also learn how to get used equipment on eBay and professional auction sites, and where to order supplies if you have only a home address. All materials are included, and the camp is limited to ten students.
