Join us on Wednesday evenings this September and October for a four-part series about synthetic biology. Explore what "synbio" is, how scientists are using innovative techniques to modify organisms, and for what purposes. Add your voice to the discussions while meeting new people and learning about state-of-the-art science and technology! These events are free, and light refreshments will be served.
How to Participate
- Attend in person at 265 Mass. Ave, Cambridge
- Join our Unhangout via Google. Watch online & Tweet questions using #MITSoapBox.
If you can't join us in person, you can watch our live stream and participate in the online disucussion! Our online forum is hosted by Unhangout, an open source tool developed at the MIT Media Lab. We will utilize Unhangout to allow remote participants to connect with each other and with synthetic biology scientists. Learn more about connecting to Unhangout and how you can join the conversation.
