Biomaker Challenge is a four-month programme challenging interdisciplinary teams to build low-cost sensors and instruments for biology. From colorimeters to microfluidics and beyond, we’re looking for frugal, open source and DIY approaches to biological experiments. We’re interested to hear from biologists looking to improve their research and pick up some electronics knowledge; engineers and computer scientists looking to apply their skills and gain experience of practical biology or anyone who is just curious and interested to participate. Up to 50 teams will receive up to £1000 support, including a Biomaker Toolkit and will exhibit their device at a Biomaker Fayre on 21 October 2017. This short talk from Dr Jenny Molloy will introduce the Challenge and present example prototypes for inspiration. One audience member will win a free Arduino microcontroller to get started early. Applications are due buy 23 June 2017 and you can find more information at http://www.synbio.cam.ac.uk/biomakerchallenge. Organised by: OpenPlant, CamBridgeSens SRN and the Synthetic Biology SRI
