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.
No prior registration required. LECTURE, WORKSHOP // 10€

What to expect at >top:
We value high quality content, thus all lectures and talks are given by expert scientists or established artists. All workshops are hands-on, i.e., you will have the occasion to do scientific procedures. We provide all materials, as well as the necessary instructions. Our workshops are open to anyone, regardless of their educational background. We welcome participants under 18 yrs old, but we prefer to be informed ahead and have an adult that accompanies them. The entry fee covers part of the workshop materials and costs of maintaining >top space. Our fees may vary over time, reflecting the current financial needs. We welcome any donations at any time, as well as collaborations. We always have tea and snacks (free), beer (2€) and a great community to connect to.
