DIY Biotech Labs are increasingly popular with amateur scientists throughout the world. In this workshop series, participants learn about biohacking - what it is and what it is not, practice different techniques used in molecular biology labs, and learn about DIY Bio citizen scientist projects. $30-$40/workshop depending on supply cost for the laboratory techniques used.

Ages 14+

Dates listed below.


  • DNA Barcoding - Thursday, April 11, 10:00am-12:00pm In many cases, scientists are able to use a short genetic marker to classify an individual to a specific species. Students practice DNA barcoding methods to identify different organisms, and learn about citizen scientist barcoding projects. $30

  • Genetic Engineering and CRISPR - Thursday, May 9, 10:00am-12:00pm CRISPR is a gene-editing tool that allows scientists to alter a gene's DNA sequence and influence the gene's function. Students try their hand at CRISPR techniques on non-pathogenic bacteria. $40

​Instructor: Dr. Tonya Shearer

Location: STEM Lab (suite 21)


Ages 8-14
Crafting with wood is all about science and math. In these workshops, students explore the science of wood, stains,

color theory and symmetry, practice measurement of lines and angles, and learn to safely use basic woodworking

tools to create awesome craft signs and projects they can take home. Family Crafting Workshops let the family join in

on the fun to create a family project (although family participation is not required).

  • Project Build: Wooden Robot – Wednesday, March 20, 10:00am-12:00pm

Instructor: Becky van Rooyen, BSc
Location: STEM Lab (suite 21)
