Seeking Scientists to Engage the Public on Synthetic Biology

Interested in engaging the public and getting communication skill support? In the summer of 2016, 200 science museums and other sites across the U.S. will be conducting hands-on activities and forum conversations to engage the public with synthetic biology. Funded by NSF, the Building with Biology project seeks to encourage information sharing between scientists and members of the public. If you're a student or practicing scientist in synthetic biology or a related field, sign up today to express your interest in participating at a location near you!
