SoundBio recently hosted its first official Open House Day, inviting members of the Puget Sound community to come into the lab to learn more about our non-profit. Folks who attended were treated to a lab tour, followed by several fun, hands-on science activities.

This year we were very well organized thanks to Dr. de Lange, who took charge in leading the event. With 3 volunteers, we were able to cover a variety of stations: microscopy, bio-craft balloon making, and micro-pipetting. Here are a few pictures from the event which was a huge success.

We hope to do more Open House offerings in the future. If you missed out this time around, don’t worry! We’re happy to offer lab tours and answer any questions during our regularly scheduled Open Hours. Questions? Feel free to email us at info (at) sound.bio.
