In this Gamelier workshop, you’ll discover and tinker with experimental projects we’ve built in our gamelab mixing game design, biology and DIY controllers. We know you’ve always wanted to steer live protozoa, fork a bacterial genome, and pilot your muscles remotely. Well this is your lucky day! Our workshop is adapted to everyone, even complete novices. By the end, you will have learned some basic biology, electronics, and programming skills, and will be ready to be the next Frankenstein of game design.

Participant requirements: nothing

Tools participants should bring: nothing (laptop optional)

Intended audience: anybody with an interest in science and experimental game design
