We had an awesome learning experience in Aysen! We visited U. Aysen and together, with students from Liceo Josefina Aguirre Montenegro in Coyhaique and from Liceo Rural Cerro Castillo in Cerro Castillo, constructed a HomeScope for each of the schools’ DIY biology groups. We learned so much about the the role Open Science Hardware can play in connecting rural and urban youths with Nature and ecosystems. Thank you all for teaching us so much and making us have so much fun! Thanks to Fondecyt 1191893 for making this possible.
Congrats to Alfredo L’Homme for taking HomeScope (http://biotexturas.org) to Shenzhen Maker Faire 2019 and win 2 Blue Ribbons!
We are super ultra exited to have Carles visiting us for six months! Carles is a physics graduate from Barcelona who is know pursuing a Ph.D. in music at UNAM in Mexico. Carles is also part of Interspecifics, a art/science/research collective we admire and love to collaborate with in order to speculate together about communications with other species. In particular, we are all trying to talk and listen to bacteria.
