Science Week SBA booth
It's that time of year again - Science Week is here, and the Synthetic Biology Australia (SBA) was out in full force at the Australian Museum in Sydney. Our booth was bustling with activity all week long, thanks to the hard work of our dedicated volunteers and the support of our friends at the Joint Academic Microbiology Seminars (JAMS) and the Centre of Excellence in Synthetic Biology (CoESB).
One of the highlights of our booth this year was the interactive zooxanthellae genetic engineering poster/game, which was created by volunteers from the SBA, JAMS and CoESB. This fun and educational activity was a hit with kids of all school ages, and it was great to see so many young minds engaging with the exciting world of genetic engineering.
The SBA booth was manned for the entire week, and we couldn't have done it without the tireless efforts of our volunteers. We'd like to take a moment to thank them for their hard work and dedication in making our booth a success. Overall, it was a fantastic week at the Australian Museum, and we were thrilled to be able to engage with so many young scientists-in-the-making. If you missed out on the fun this year, be sure to keep an eye out for the SBA booth at future Science Weeks!
