    Diatoms are photosynthetic microalgae that produce 20% of the oxygen on Earth. Although tiny, diatoms play an immense role in keeping the planet's ecosystem working. They're important mediators of carbon and oxygen cycles, an integral component of marine food webs and the principal cycles of silica, which constitutes 25% of the Earth's crust.
     

    The workshop is open for everyone. Register here.

    Trapped in transition

    This hands-on workshop deals with a very unique organism: partially plant, as it feeds from the sun, but more similar to bacteria in its structure and behaviour. You will learn how to make food and nurture 3 different types of microalgae. We will spend the last part of the workshop designing bioreactors and wearables for microalgae.

    Vital invasion

    Phages are micro-organisms that invaded the planet one million years ago, having one main goal: to make life simply better. In spite of being the largest population on Earth, phages are so silent that their presence is defined by the absence of bacteria.

    In this hands-on workshop, expect a face-to-face encounter: you will finally meet the phages using our DIY display technique.

    Let it glow!

    Living in a voluntary relationship with the sea animals, Photobacterium has developed a social sense directly connected to its bioluminescence. In this open workshop, everyone will influence the social life of Photobacterium in an attempt to make it glow.
