Biomaker Challenge Final Showcase | 19th Oct | 17:00-18:30

You are invited to join Biomaker participants and finalists for a virtual showcase of this year's projects.

Hear from the Biomaker Challenge 2020 finalists and find out more about their low-cost, open-source biological hardware projects, as well as how you can get involved with the 2021 Biomaker Challenge.

The OpenPlant Biomaker Challenge brings together interdisciplinary teams based at the University of Cambridge and Norwich Research Park (and their widely flung partners) to (i) build low-cost sensors and instruments for biology or (ii) develop some biological resource or outreach project.


17:00 Welcome and Introduction
17:10 Overview of 2020 projects
17:30 Finalist Presentations and Demonstrations
18:10 Q&A
