2018 Cambridge Science Festival In/Out/Under/Transform, presented by EMW Street
Please register for this FREE event Let's learn about food and then go out to eat afterwards, across the street to H Mart. ==== Celebrate the marvels of the microbiome as we follow bacteria through the human body and outside, featuring local startups and a community lab that are discovering novel ways in which the microbiome can make an impact on society. We will have a fun skit with a dancing component that allows for one-on-one discussions with the organizations and demonstrations of the research followed by an interactive breakout session that will explore how this research can better serve local and global communities. IN: GinkgoBioworks, a Boston-based biotech startup that creates fragrances and foods out of microbugs OUT: OpenBiome, America’s first non-profit public stool bank, based in Somerville, dedicated to expanding safe access to fecal microbiota transplantation for the treatment of C. difficile UNDER: Senseable Cities Underworlds Projects, an MIT project studying different species of bacteria, viruses and chemical compounds to help monitor urban health patterns, and its spinoff, Biobot Analytics, a Cambridge-based startup working directly with cities to transform their wastewater infrastructure into public health observatories to look at drug use, infectious disease and the microbiome. They are soon starting pilots in Cambridge, MA and Cary, NC. TRANSFORM: EMW Street Bio, a Cambridge community biology and design lab that created Biota Beats, a microbial record player that translate bacterial growth into new forms of sound This event is part of the 10 day 2018 Cambridge Science Festival.

    What we're about

    Public Group

    Greater Boston offers enormous cultural opportunities to encounter everyday in our communities, work places, schools, and universities. This meetup group is to take advantage of such wide-ranging cultural environment and to explore our cultural diversity expressed in art, music, academic events, food, or just gather for fun to get to know each other with different cultural backgrounds. Anybody who is interested in exploring multi-cultural events happening in Boston and Cambridge are welcomed to join.

    New (& Existing) Member Policy: (mostly suggestions from event organizers, who work really hard)

    Your own profile: Please create your own profile including at least 3 information about yourself (such as a photo, maybe your first or nick name, and answers to our questions about your favorite cultures.) Members without these basic information (e.g., just initials or a photo of your pet only are not acceptable and subject to deletion (if you added some other personal info, then a photo of a pet maybe OK). This is to avoid "creepiness"syndrome from the point of view of event organizers and fellow meetup participants in order to promote healthy social media.

    Suggested meetup events: We encourage everybody to "suggest" meetup events for the benefit of your own experience. Then the organizers (one of us) can announce the events for you if they are appropriate for our Nomads group. Usually if you "suggest" an event, you are regarded as the "event host". The date and place are essential ("no location, no date" are not allowed since that would be useless). Inclusion of a related website and a photo are encouraged in the description. Occasionally we post "FYI" kind of event information without a host- but that would be an exception than a norm. Events based on profit-oriented commercial activities may be deleted. Try to avoid too lengthy descriptions of events or musicians/performers (who has time/patience to read a 3 page description of a meetup event!). Be brief and crisp. Is this enough for now?

    Happy Nomad Meetup!
