Saturday Science

Splat Space

Saturday Science meetups have resumed. We have recently moved from #24 Shoppers St to the main Splat Space location (see below for directions). Come to see & hear about member projects, or to talk about or work on a project or idea of your own. This is also a good opportunity for potential Splat Space members to get a tour of our site. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we encourage visitors to bring masks and observe social distancing.

The community lab effort is led by TriDIYBio (tridiybio.org), the biology interest group of Splat Space. Our goal is to create a Community Laboratory open to all, focusing on the interests of its members. These interests currently include: Citizen Science, Biotechnology, Entomology, Teaching and Experimenting with Biology, DIY Lab Equipment, Electronics, and Science-y art. New members are invited to join in ongoing activities, or to use the space to work on your own projects and ideas.

Saturday Science events are free and open to the public. Everyone is very welcome to attend, regardless of prior science experience.
