No-Code Programming for Biology Workshops 2022

27 June & 1st of July

This workshop aims to help biologists get up and running with building their own custom device for use in the lab and field. With simplified beginner’s kits, and a programme adapted for distance learning, we hope that this workshop can offer you a new set of skills that will be useful in your future career. No coding or electronics experience is required, and we will work though a number of simple tasks step-by-step. The workshop will take place over two sessions from 5:30-7:00pm on 27th June and 1st July, and will include hands-on sessions, as well as the opportunity to meet other budding biomakers.

If you’d like to attend, please register on our Eventbrite page.

You can find out more about the Biomaker and No-Code Programming for Biology programmes on the Biomaker website.
