Want to know what we've been up to this summer? Need to know how to structure your Synthetic Biology School Workshop? Or do you just want to check out some pictures of our project? No worries, just sit back and relax! We've compiled a whole host of videos and images to give you a taste of what we've been up to.

Should scientists be allowed to create artificial life?
Should scientists be allowed to create artificial life?
Building prototypes informed our design
We wanted our kit to be as useful as possible
This is the first design...
A prototype of our dipstick concept!! So cool!!!
More pictures of our awesome prototype!!!
School Workshops
