Inspired by maak such games as Boonanza and festival Sushi Go, maak we festival quickly made a game where you would play dairy products worth some points and infect the products of other players to make them worth less.
We went to nine schools to give a guest lecture.
In short, a super fun and educational experience at the University of Groningen with the iGEM groningen team!A meeting was set up to meet with 2 PhD students to talk about our plans.Therefore, our time with the iGEM team has enriched us with many new experiences." For our safety proposal for the rivm we said we would make a card game.We are extremely grateful that iGEM Groningen has given us the opportunity to stand next to them in the lab.The Groningen Biomolecular festival Sciences and Biotechnology Institute (GBB) maak is the centre for biomolecular sciences at the University of Groningen.He is highly experienced in educating groningen 7 maak till 18 year-olds.
We met with, ferdinand van der Graaf to discuss the game we are designing about synthetic biology safety.
He works as a researcher at the umcg hospital, the biggest hospital in the Netherlands, as well as a teaching at a local high school.
We quickly got a response from the iGEM team and they stated that they were glad to let us do our research within their research group.
Thanks to the organizing committee we were able to attend the symposium for one day with three people of our team.The enzyme could bind very specific to the two 'reagents' and help to speed up the reaction.After the lecture, we had a discussion where everyone shared their opinions.follow, you groningen are here: Festivals K Kingsland Festival Groningen Kingsland Festival Groningen 2017, apr 27 2017, date.We contacted Richel Bilderbeek to give us some tips about preparing lessons for children from 10 to 12 years old.Around fifteen people with different backgrounds attended the lecture: students, researchers and employees in industry.Furthermore, he recommended sticking to tried and true game elements that work, something we found to be true too.Two kids were blindfolded, they were the reagents that had to react with each other.After our collaboration, we were invited by the rivm to join their event.
It worked pretty well but it was deemed to be more fun than educational, especially after talking again to Jaco Westra.
In turn, we aid them with various projects including assisting high school students with their groningen Profiel Werkstuk (Profile Assignment in English, a short research internship).
We were part of the biotechnology section where we represented biotechnology.
