A community lab does not maketh itself. We need your help, as part of our growing DIYbio community, to help us catalog and set up all the equipment which has been generously donated by our Fairy God Parents. So roll up your sleeves and join us on March 28th at 2351 Faraday Ave, Carlsbad 92008 to get involved. The best way to learn exactly what we have and what experiments you could do in our space is to come and help set it all up! Also, use this chance to talk to San Diego's DIYbio crowd about how you can use our community lab to advance your project or learn more about science.
Bring your project ideas and have them ready to record on camera, because, that's right, we will be recording them!
Sign up on biotechnbeyond.com/join and describe your project briefly. In the Subject line start with "My project" then an apt short name for your project. In the box below the subject line describe what your project is in 2 very short sentences. This video will be for our crowdfunding campaign to raise money for the laboratory. In essence, you will be raising awareness for your own research/product and helping us fund the lab at the same time!
I recommend bringing a diagram or a small prop to help describe your ideas as it may become part of our 5 minute crowdfunding video. We will be shooting more film later this week and the following week so if you can't make it this Thursday contact me either through meetup or by email at: sportsman dot rich at gmail dot com
Again be mindful we can't put everyone's project into a 5 minute video (although we will certainly try!) but if you can prepare 2 minutes of talking points about your project we will try to get a brief synopsis of as many projects as we can!
Dilanka has graciously agreed to help film and I will be setting up some audio recording. The hope is to have some interviews about possible projects, so if you would like to get involved in our video (which will be on a crowdfunding site near your internet accessible device soon) please let us know, but we will not release any footage of you without your permission!
Kevin, Babak, and Richard Rouse will be organizing the equipment list. Max has already done some of the work for us (thank you Max!) but we need to get some more information from each piece of equipment especially the energy requirements for each unit. So come on down to the Beyond, we will provide refreshments and a good time to meet other fellow citizen scientists!
