In this hands-on workshop, you will create your own agar art using live microbes. Participants will create agar art by painting with microbes and learn how to use traditional biology lab techniques with artistic tools. Before the experience you watch a video giving basic instruction of how to use the tools.
You will be assigned to one of four half-hour “painting” sessions to come and painton February 23; sessions scheduled to limit participant occupancy.
Experienced scientists will instruct you on techniques and teach you about the genetic engineering used to modify bacteria colors during your session
Each participant will have the opportunity to create onw design which will be left at MakeHaven to incubate.
After incubation, participants will join an online session (March 2nd @ 6pm) to observe and share the now visible bacterial paintings.
