PROJECTS we are working on THIS WEEK:

- Find Tardigrades / Water bears

- Make Kombucha leather!



Before we meet up at our lab, we will go for a hike and look for some moss on trees! Please bring the following things:

- a knife or forceps

- ziplock

We meet at 5.30 sharp at Metro Saint-Henri!

We aim to be back at Bricobio around 6.30 for sure!

Tardigrades live in moss. So we will walk around and get some moss samples from trees and try our luck!


The rest of the evening will be spent at Bricobio to continue the work of the algae tank and the kombucha leather. We'll look at our fresh samples under the microscope and try to find some Tardigrades!


Come on over and lets talk about possible projects!

Do you want to brew beer, make your first GMO, grow out some fungi, or extract your cat's DNA?

Or do you want to learn more about biotechnology?


We'll work at Bricobio, located in Helios Makerspace!
