Earthfest

Earthfest logo

Our iGEM team participated in an Earthfest sustainability event, hosted by Camden Clean Air. This was a fabulous opportunity to educate children from ages 9-16 about synthetic biology and its application in sustainability. Our project was used as a stepping stone to inspire young budding minds, as well as to introduce them to SynBio as a field that is governing the future of science. The day consisted of six primary school workshops for years 5-6, and a careers fair for secondary students from years 8-11. With approximately 900 students attending the careers fair, we felt extremely lucky to spread the reach of SynBio to the younger generation. It was a truly successful day, and we can’t wait to see the entries for our poster competition - more info coming soon so watch this space!
