A family event as part of MadLab's March 2013 residency at The Arts Catalyst.

DIY Biology is a rapidly growing global movement whose aim is to democratise, demystify and widen participation in low-cost, hands-on biology - bringing it out of the laboratory and onto the kitchen table.

Manchester’s very own MadLab will be resident at The Arts Catalyst getting their hands dirty with DIY biology. Pioneers of the DIY-bio movement, even the FBI is keeping an eye on them!

All welcome – curious amateurs with no biology knowledge encouraged!

Saturday 16 March, 2-4pm
