Join us for the first Hackaday LA meetup of 2019.

Presenting a talk by Saba Fazeli from Beyond Meat, and Leopold N. Green from Cal Tech covering gut health and the power of engineering food and healthy bacteria.

**Beyond Meat is a Los Angeles based producer of plant based meat substitutes.
Saba is a Mechanical Engineer for Beyond Meat's R&D group in El Segundo, where he spends his time designing and building new and improved iterations of the machinery responsible for reorganizing plant-based materials into meat.

**Dr. Green is a postdoctoral researcher at Caltech (Richard Murray’s Lab), engineering bacteria to control the ratio of ‘bad’ and ‘good’ bacteria in our microbiomes. He also teaches at Long Beach City College as an adjunct chemistry professor.

After the talk(s) there will be a panel for those who have either entered into the Hackaday Prize and/or have questions for our mentors regarding a project that they are currently working on. We will also have time for community announcements, and socializing. If you'd like to give a 2 minute demo of your prize entry and/or a community announcement, please see the organizers when you arrive to get set up.

A community announcement includes looking for a project partner, a job, offering a project/ job, the announcement of your startup launch, your Crowdfunding pitch, etc.

We're looking forward to seeing you Thursday, July 11 at 6:00pm!
