Starting today, December 18, as an added incentive to contribute to our Microryza campaign, we will be giving away a bonus Gift Certificate for every $50 donated. Gift Certificates are valid for one open lab session or one class, lecture or workshop. They can be used by the donor or given away as a gift. Give the gift of science and education this holiday season!
We are raising funds for materials for our Molecular Biology class, as well as scholarships for HiveBio desk memberships. HiveBio’s mission is to promote community involvement in science and provide a safe lab space for scientific discovery and education. Our Microryza page can be viewed at the following address:
We are raising money to fund Keyed Desk Memberships and Materials Fees for the Basic Molecular Biology class. Please share the link to the Microryza campaign with your friends, family, and co-workers via email, Facebook, Twitter and other social media.
Desk Memberships at HiveBio give the member 24 hour access to the lab as well as exclusive use of one our office stations, which includes a desk, computer, and storage. This is our highest cost membership. We’d like to be able to offer this in scholarship to 8 individuals who wouldn’t be able to afford it otherwise. That could be you! So spread the word!
Our Basic Molecular Biology class is offered as an introduction into some basic processes of molecular biology. This entry level class helps members learn DNA isolation, Gel electrophoresis and PCR processes in a hands-on, fun environment with other interested citizen scientists. The cost for this class is usually $15 plus the cost of materials. We’d like to be able to cover the cost of materials for 4 runs of this class, making the only cost to students the $15 class fee. This would be a significant discount and make the class more widely accessible.
Check out our Microryza campaign! With 21 funding days left We’ve raised 47% of our funds. We’d like to thank the Pacific Northwest DIYbio community for the generous support that makes the existence of this lab possible. Help us reach our funding goal by donating and sharing this project with your social media networks .
