We're so happy to share these photos from Biohackathon L.A. 2013! Students from L.A.'s Promise Manual Arts High School proved science is cool, and learned about cross-disciplinary opportunities in the life sciences while genotyping themselves. Stay tuned for our series on biodesign, STEM, and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math education), coming up in April!
