Maker spaces and community do-it-yourself biology (DIYbio) labs have been opening up across the country in recent years. Both harness an interest in learning and working in non-academic settings. But how can these spaces work together? What is the potential for collaboration? How can schools utilize these space as part of their academic programs?
Fab Lab DC is located at 1418 North Capitol Street NW in Washington, DC. A map is available here.
