Let it glow! bioluminescence Workshop

19:00 – 21:00
TopLab at Schillerpromenade 4, 12049 Berlin

On the evening of Dec 5, Mirela Alistar will start the series of workshops at TopLab with an introduction to bioluminescence.

Living in a voluntary relationship with the sea animals, Photobacterium has developed a social sense directly connected to its bioluminescence. In this open workshop, everyone will influence the social life of Photobacterium in an attempt to make it glow. Practically, you will learn to culture the bacteria on agar plates and then grow it at home until it glows beautifully. Everyone is welcome to the workshop, that means also children and young adults. No prior knowledge is needed and all the materials are provided by us.

This workshop is part of our ongoing crowdfunding campaign to support TopLab, thus the entry fee will be entirely donated to TopLab.

Entry fee: 20 Euro, can be paid in cash at the door, or online by acquiring a 20 Euro workshop perk.
