Saturday, March 4 - 3:00 PM to 11:59 PM

What's In Your Food?

Have you ever read a food label and wondered if it was entirely accurate? The truth is that the FDA does not have the resources to check every food item on a regular basis, particularly if it is from a small company or local supplier. This class is all about empowering consumers to investigate what they eat through DNA technologies not previously accessible to the general public.

What's In Your Food

Have you ever read a food label and wondered if it was entirely accurate? The truth is that the FDA does not have the resources to check every food item on a regular basis, particularly if it is from a small company or local supplier. This class is all about empowering consumers to investigate what they eat through DNA-based technologies previously unavailable to the general public.

Sundays, March 5,12,19

2:00 PM to 6:00 PM

Biotechnology Crash Course

A great course that teaches you the basic techniques. Very similar to the Biohacker Boot Camp, but a more relaxed pace. If you've ever wanted to do a little biotech project of your own, or if you're just curious about what those guys do in the lab every day, this is the best course to start with. Isolate your own DNA and analyze it, make bacteria glow, and unleash your inner mad scientist in this hands-on course.


Monday, March 6; Tuesday, March 7; Wednesdays, March 8,15

3:00 PM to 7:00 PM
