Featured Fall 2018 Course: Synthetic Biology for Innovators
Synthetic biology allows us to engineer new biological systems and redesign existing biological components by integrating aspects of biotechnology, evolutionary and molecular biology, systems biology, computer engineering, computational biology, and genetic engineering. Advancement in technological tools and techniques make this material accessible to motivated individuals from many disciplines, so no biology background is required
Design | Make HS Summer Camp
Inworks partnered with the College of Arts & Media’s LYNX Camps to offer a Design | Make camp for high school students. During the week long camp, students designed and made robotic sculptures!
Along the way they created pop-up paper art, built paper circuits, learned to 3D print, and explored mechanics by creating sculptures that move on their own. Students also programed Arduino microcontrollers to incorporate LEDs, sensors, and other electronics into their creations!
