Saturday Science on May 11 will have a hands-on workshop “Introduction to Microbiological Technique” covering the following topics:
1. Autoclaving and pouring plates
2. Streaking plates and using selective media
3. Sterile transfer of culture media
4. Determining bacterial culture concentration
We will begin at 1:30 PM. Please send an email to [masked] if you think you might want to participate; hopefully we will have enough materials for all but this cannot be guaranteed.
The community lab effort is led by TriDIYBio, the biology interest group of SplatSpace. 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.
