We are building a biolab
4. November 2017 @ 19:00 - 23:00
Saturday, 4 November 2017, at 7 PM – 11 PM
Schillerpromenade 4, 12049 Neukölln, Berlin, Germany
We are building TopLab: a community bio laboratory for curiosity, creativity, education and interdisciplinary research.
We are launching on Saturday a crowdfunding campaign to provide our Lab with the basic equipment used in a Biology laboratory. With this equipment our community can develop their own ideas where people can complete their projects using our resources or develop their experimental research. This campaign is an important development for Top Lab’s long journey ahead, which is to become an open space with the interest for sharing resources and overcoming those barriers given by the lack of professional facilities, equipment and access to public knowledge and practice. The community of the future depends on people like us who are initiating new era of science and providing new solutions and opportunities for the planet we live on.
TopLab is supported by Top eV, an association for the promotion of cultural practice and social innovation which is situated at >top Schillerpalais, a project space in the heart of Berlin. Using borrowed, recycled and home-built equipment, we recreate a typical do-it-yourself biology (DIYbio) lab and bring synthetic biology to the public.
