Interesting Science Idea / Opportunity

I had talked to you earlier about my work opening a Bio-Hackerspace in Seattle. We decided to use a
crowd-sourcing technique, and have a project running right now through Microryza

I was wondering if it would be possible to send it out the AWIS members? Even if they aren’t interested in
donating, I think they could be interested in participating in a space like this, or referring others. We really

want it to be a community space, with all levels of background in science. We love the AWIS model of
mentorship, and we’re trying to work that into the space.

With Regards,
Katriona Guthrie
