Sunday, May 31 - 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM

Backyard Brains Neural Interface Workshop

In this workshop we will explore the human bodies' potential to generate signals from from the nervous system that can be used to interface with the outside world. We will begin with a lecture on the neuroscience of bio-potentials, then quickly dive into demonstrations.  You will be able to observe (and record) your own brain's signals: either EEG from the head, EKG from the heart, or EMG from your muscles, EOG from the eye... and we will interface these signals into electronics to control useful devices.  No programming skills are required, but if you are interested... we will have Arduino-compatible devices that can read and respond to your body's Action Potentials.  Bring your laptop to make your own inventions! 


Saturday, June 6 - 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Bacterial Printing Workshop with Christine Marizzi

Join us for a two-part Bacteria Printing Workshop, part of of IDEAS CITY 2015 Festival to collectively create NYC microbial map !

Sundays, June 7,14,21

3:00 PM to 7:00 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, June 15; Tuesday, June 16; Wednesday, June 17; Thursday, June 18

6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Biohacker Boot Camp

Boot Camp for biohackers! An intensive hands-on week that covers all the lab skills you need to start your own genomics or genetic engineering project.
