One of the main reasons why people are averse of new technologies is ignorance. We tried to fill in this lack of information by generating awareness. Our goal here is to show that science is interesting and fun, and that synthetic biology is not scarry but promising for future prospects. First we build this website where everybody to make people aware of the promosing application of synthetic biology. With the help of the current available social media like facebook and twitter, we got many more visitors on our website. Quickly the scientific community knew about our activities. We reached the general public by our appearance in the national news and national newspaper. It was also important to make companies aware of our project in order to raise enough funding. Moreover, it was useful to built good relationships with companies to discuss the latest developments. We visited Shell Amsterdam to find out what is happening in the field of water mangement.

By participating in the Nanovideohunt competition we helped to make young aware of science on the small scale by showing them what we did with synthetic biology.
