MOSI says
SUMMER CAMP HIGHLIGHT: BIOHACKING a S.T.E.A.M. (Science/Technology/Engineering/Art/Math) Career Camp for motivated #summercampers between the ages for 14 and 17.

July 27 - 31: 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Discover the movement of do-it-yourself biologists (DIYbio) building their own laboratory equipment and running experiments in biology and genetic engineering around the world. Extract your own DNA, analyze ancestry through bioinformatics, splice genes into bacteria, and learn standard techniques such as using gel electrophoresis. Learn to use equipment designed to amplify DNA using PCR reactions, build plasmids with restriction enzymes, and make bacteria glow with transformation. Create and set up an exhibit on the biohacking movement to go on display at MOSI. Explore the controversy and significance of biohacking through investigation, hands-on labs, and meetings with experts in microbiology, genetics, and the medical field.

Program Includes:
• Build your very own genetic circuit and test it in the lab to better understand how synthetic biology can produce improved fuels, drugs, and futuristic materials.
• Use 3D printing technology to create 3D models of DNA, neurons, and other models used in medical science.
• Apply biotechnology to create foods such as yogurt and bread.
