This pre-challenge mixer event, held in the Chris Lamb Training Suite at the John Innes Centre, will be a great opportunity to learn more about the challenge, meet other potential participants and share ideas before the application closes on 11 May.

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.

Whether you’re a biologist looking to optimise your protocols and pick up some electronics knowledge; an engineer looking to apply your skills and gain experience of practical biology or you’re just curious and interested to participate, we look forward to meeting you!

More information about the 2018 Biomaker Challenge and projects from last year's challenge can be found on

Everyone who comes to this event can enter into a prize draw for one of two Arduino starter kits. Winners will be drawn at the second Biomaker Pre-Challenge Mixer event at UEA on Thursday 19th April.
