TEDxYouth@Tukuy 2020 Workshop
On August 22, TEDxYouth@Tukuy hosted an event for 700 students from all over Peru, where two of our team members led a webinar about synthetic biology and problem solving.
TEDx Talk: “La ciencia en manos de escolares”
This year, our iGEM team’s TEDxTukuy talk was uploaded on Youtube and to the official TED website. In September, we created subtitles for this TED talk both in English and Spanish and submitted them to the TED organization for them to be uploaded to the TEDx talk video. These subtitles will make the video more accessible to a worldwide audience.
Educational videos produced in collaboration with UPCH_Peru
In collaboration with the UPCH iGEM team we created a series of scientific educational videos for Peruvian students, who had limited access to science education.
The series was made up of 4 parts in total:
- Introduction to the scientific method
- Introduction to synthetic biology
- FDR-HB_Peru team project
- UPCH_Peru team project
Workshop organized in collaboration with UPCH_Peru
We organized a hands-on virtual event for youth from three main regions of Peru held on October 24th alongside the UPCH_Peru iGEM team. This event had the goal of informing students about synthetic biology and our team projects, but most importantly developing their curiosity and interest in science.
Journal Club Peru Presentation
We gave an online presentation on Journal Club Peru’s Facebook platform with over 10,000 followers. Three of our iGEM members explained the basics of synthetic biology and described our project in a fun and engaging way for other Peruvian students.
Frontiers for Young Minds
Frontiers for Young Minds is a science journal for young students, reviewed by middle and high school students before they get published. We help provide feedback to scientists on how to modify their articles to make them more appealing and understandable to young audiences.
