My name is Jieying Chen (Jaylin) and I recently graduated with a B.S Biochemistry from the UW. I am interning for a community DIY Bio Lab called SoundBio Lab located just off campus. Our mission is promoting science education, providing access to biotechnology, and fostering self-learning in order to inspire the next generation of scientists. We work with local after school programs and home school organizations to host in-lab workshops as well as provide outreach events to bring science directly to our community.
As you might imagine, we have lots of opportunities for UW students to get involved. We are looking for volunteers to help with workshops, outreach programs, and to get people genuinely excited about science. I am writing to see if you are willing to include an introduction (see below) about SoundBio Lab in your listserv emails to get more UW students interested in helping.
“SoundBio Lab is a community of amateur and professional science enthusiasts dedicated to promoting science education, providing access to biotechnology, and fostering self-learning in order to inspire the next generation of scientists. We organize projects, workshops, and science events embracing hands-on learning as our motto. We are looking for volunteers to help bring Science more accessible to the community. As a volunteer, you are able to gain molecular biology techniques such as DNA isolation, PCR, and restriction enzyme digests. You will also get a touch of what is like to educate the community about science.
Here is a link to the SoundBio website if you are interested in learning more about the organization: https://sound.bio/. If you are interested in helping, please fill out our volunteer application form: https://sound.bio/volunteer/.”
If you have any questions about the organization or want to get involved in anyway, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Thank you so much!
