Education Network

Mission and Vision

The Steering Group for the iGEM Education Network was founded in 2019 to promote Synthetic Biology education among iGEMers. SynBio has been evolving rapidly and there is an increasing need to develop educational tools, resources, educator pools and analyse impact on various educational models at different educational levels.

With the Education Network, we aspire to facilitate connections between international iGEM/Synbio educators and create a platform for them share knowledge and seek collaborations.

Our aim is to reach out to iGEMers passionate about Synthetic Biology Education and channel their passion into developing new educational tools and initiatives that could benefit our community.

You can contact our Steering Group at after-education@igem.org.
