Event details:

This Meetup is a free-form version of the monthly Science Makers gathering organised by the Synthetic Biology SRI at Cambridge Makespace. It's a chance to:

• Work on projects with the Biomaker Challenge teams.

• Find out about a range of projects in low-cost equipment for molecular biology and imaging, see how internet of things technology is making it easier than ever before to connect equipment together and operate it remotely.

• Build equipment for the Biomakespace, a fledgling community lab for biology and engineering being established at the Biomedical Campus.
