Sachiko Hirosue (JP/CH), Hackteria / BioDesign.CC
With hackteria partners (Art)ScienceBLR (IN) and Lifepatch (ID), in spring 2013, we have started a collaborative research project BIO-DESIGN for the REAL WORLD. We are interested in analyzing water quality, with open and mobile labs, as a starting point to have conversations on water.

Stefania Druga (RO/DE), HacKidemia
HacKidemia is a mobile invention lab for children where they learn by playing and by doing. The goal is to introduce them to hands-on science and rapid prototyping and work on projects for the community: building solar panels, watter filters, electricity convertors.
