The BioΗack Academy is an intensive training for teachers, students and invited participants. The participants will learn the basics of biotechnology, 3D design, digital manufacturing, programming and electronics, resulting in the ability to build their own, functioning, microbiology laboratory.


HYBRID LABs are activities intentionally structured to explore, co-create and test innovative learning, teaching and training materials.

After completing the BioHack Academy participants will be able to make their own range of equipment that will enable them to do experiments on their own in microbiology or genetic laboratory with open-source hard-, soft- and wetware.
