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.


Sunday, July 31 - 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Non-Toxic B/W Film Processing Using Coffee and Beer

Process your own film using Brooklyn Brewery beer and instant coffee crystals! In this one-day workshop, participants will be given all of the information necessary to mix their own negative processing chemistry using a combination of consumable items from the grocery store. We will go over basic non-toxic processing options, then mix a synthesized solution based on the classic Caffenol (coffee) recipe and a beer processing “soup” developed by a friend of the org (and master chemist) Dagie Brundert. All ingredients, equipment, and safety gear will be provided.
