Molecular Gastronomy
Lab equipment and chemistry has made its way into the kitchen - with water baths, centrifuges, freeze dryers, 3D printers and more now involved in gastronomic creations. During the December 2017 Science Makers session, over 25 members of the SRI, Cambridge Makespace and interested members of the public heard about some of the techniques of 'molecular gastronomy' and tried them out!

Neurobiology: from brains to circuits
Probing the electrical systems of living things is easier than ever thanks to readily available open source technologies and commodity electronics. In this Science Makers we’ll explore open hardware for electrophysiology and measurement of behaviour in plants and animals for both education and research. Then we'll control machines using our minds (or at least muscle movements).

Science Makers: 3D Printing for Science
3D printing opens up a world of custom science instrumentation that can be instantly shared and fabricated around the world. It has been used to build precision microscopes and alignment tools, modify all manner of standard lab kit, visualise 3D structures from imaging data and more. In this Science Makers, we'll look at a whole range of ideas for 3D printing in science with both plastics and biomaterials. There will be an opportunity to try out some activities and play with hardware in the afternoon following lunch.

Science Makers: building better microscopes
Last year we heard from Brad Amos on smartphone cameras for microscopy and the marvellous WaterScope on their 3D-printed, Raspberry Pi camera. This year we're stepping up a notch to look at DIY approaches to better microscopes, from automation to novel imaging techniques and even some more expensive (not so DIY) kit that illustrates benefits of custom approaches to imaging.

Science Makers: control machines with your brain
Electrical impulses control our muscles and neurons, we'll find out how to amplify them and what that can teach us - plus we'll get hands on controlling Arduinos remotely with our minds (or muscles).

Science Makers: DIY DNA Part 1 - Reading DNA
The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is an essential technique in molecular biology. During this Science Makers, we'll learn about PCR, extract DNA from your choice of plant and assess relatedness to other plants.
