Genes, Teens and Greens – Mini Maker Faire Talk

Over the weekend, the Singapore Science Festival had a Mini Maker Faire at the Science Centre Singapore. It was a great opportunity to see all the makers and DIY enthusiast out there at the Marquee. There were a lot of people and a real buzz about the fun and ool projects by our local makers. There were also workshops and presentations throughout the weekend.

I was fortunate to be given some time to share about the DIYBio and Bio-hacker scene. I used the talk to help highlight the importance of having such a culture in Singapore that will see a rise of more biomedical and biotech entrepreneurs. Here’s the highlight of my talk in PDF.
