iGEMers Miroboard

We are officially launching “the iGEMers' Miroboard” that will serve as a platform for you to share your thoughts, ideas and events with us as well as ask us your doubts about different aspects of the iGEM project such as the Wiki, the Registry, the Judging Form etc. Check it out and explore the miro space here

About the Initiative

Our iGEM Ambassadors will be hosting fun-interactive meetups every month for iGEMers to socialize, play and get to know each other. This will help the community come together, interact and discuss topics not just related to synbio or iGEM but any global/regional experience that are be fun to share. This will help the new teams learn and know about past experiences and stories of iGEM and help mold their project into a fun + innovative activity in some way. And, potentially it could help building new collaborations

This project is organized by the Ambassadors for anyone from the iGEM community and aims to:

#1
Build a platform for people to socialize, share experiences, know about the world around etc.
#2
Guide the teams throughout the year with different phases of their iGEM journey, such as team development, registration, deadlines etc.
#3
Set a ground of potential collaborations with iGEM Teams or institutes who could provide them resources to help them with their research work (e,g, wet-lab research)
#4
Regional meetups in local languages to overcome language barriers.

Format


The sessions would broadly be divided in two parts: The Game/Ice breaker and The Discussion

iGEM 2021 Teams will be guided to analyze & plan their deadlines, strategies for collaboration and other aspects of their iGEM experience. The information from these sessions will be documented and used to enhance and improve resources for iGEM teams. This program will also be extended to regional languages, eventually in collaboration with the Open Science and Accessibility Steering Group.

Session


The sessions will happen in 3 different regional zones led by Ambassadors on the last weekend of every month.

Other Details


The sessions are open to all iGEMers.
