BioDesign Studio

Synthetic biology, bioengineering, and biological design are fields that scientists ultimately hope will allow humans to hack our genes, use synthetic DNA as super-efficient hard drives, and even create new types of life forms. But how do you explain it to a layman? BioDesign Studio, a new permanent exhibition at San Jose’s Tech Museum of Innovation, offers hands-on labs that let visitors to hack live bacterial colonies and more. Interactive features like the on-site Living Colors Lab, where visitors can use DNA to change the hues of live bacteria, and the Creature Creation Station, which allows guests to create entirely new digital life-forms, make this a thoroughly engaging place for active learning.
