LUNCH AND PARKING PROVIDED EACH DAY! MUST BE ADULT (18+). SPACE IS LIMITED.
This is a summer professional development workshop meant to teach you how to use emerging synthetic biology for teaching and learning. It is a collaboration between The University of Texas at El Paso and The BioBuilder Educational Foundation and will be hosted at Fab Lab El Paso.
This workshop will give you hands on opportunities to carry out biomaking for teaching and learning. We will also practice using enabling technologies like synthetic biology to genetically alter cells to make things like (1) banana-smells from bacteria, (2) vitamin-producing yeast to bake bread, and (3) microbes that produce pigments for making art, and so much more. We will show strategies for using this in classroom settings or in your personal educational pursuits.
This study is investigating perspectives about synthetic biology for teaching and learning. We are also interested in your views about synthetic biology in everyday life. Participants will complete surveys and interviews. No compensation will be provided. You may enroll in the workshop and not participate in the research portion.
The workshop dates are from Monday (5th of July, 2021) through Friday (9th of July, 2021), each day from 10:00am to 4:00pm

Girls Who Code is a national non-profit organization leading the movement to inspire, educate, and equip girls with the computing skills to pursue 21st century opportunities. Through our Club, we aim to close the gender gap in technology. Join our Intensive Club and learn how to build an app, design a video game, and change the world through code in two weeks. Students will learn and socialize together under the guidance and instruction of a female Computer Science instructor. Register today at https://fablabelpaso.org/codeclub-2021/

World-renowned artist Chico Macmurtie will be bringing his Border Crosser robots to El Paso in Fall of 2021, through an exhibition at the Rubin Center for the Visual Arts at UTEP and through public events throughout the city in September and October.
In anticipation of this visit, El Paso’s Fab Lab is collaborating with the artist and the Rubin Center for the Visual Arts to host a free Robotic Art workshop for teens entering grades 9-12. The workshop is designed to engage and inspire students with little to no background knowledge of robotics, or coding. Through a series of design challenges, students will ultimately build and code their own miniature interactive art installation that mimics elements of the full scale Border Crosser. Students will desig and build their own robotic sculptures in a fun and collaborative environment. There is no cost to participate, and all materials are provided.
