    Get your hands on science with activities that will encourage conversations between the public and scientists about the social and ethical considerations of synthetic biology.

    The Building with Biology project is a community of informal science educators, researchers, and scientists dedicated to developing innovative resources, practices and processes to build the capacity of the field to use public engagement with science (PES) activities to extend STEM learning about science, technology, and societal implications through public and scientist dialogue about synthetic biology. Through collaboration with informal science education (ISE) institutions and partnering scientists, a physical Building with Biology kit of hands-on activities and programs is being developed to create conversations among publics and scientists about synthetic biology. During the summer of 2016, two-hundred (200) sites nationwide will participate in Building with Biology events and conversations.
