BioBuilders engineer living cells by modifying their DNA. High school students are invited to a four day workshop where they will learn the necessary molecular techniques and design principles for reprogramming micro-organisms. This laboratory-based workshop applies scientific understanding and bioengineering principles so students can become BioBuilders, ready to develop biotechnologies that meet society's needs. Students will be introduced to the process of BioDesign using the BioBuilder curriculum, and will have a chance to explore how these principles might be used to solve real world problems.
