HOW TO GROW (ALMOST) ANYTHING
HTGAA is a Synthetic Biology Program directed by George Church, professor of Genetics at Harvard medical school, with faculty for Wyss, Ginkgo Bioworks, Harvard, MIT, Epibone, Tufts and more.
The Academany is a distributed educational model providing a unique educational experience. Each Fab Lab that participates in the Academany program is part of a global Fab Lab / Academany network. These Fab Labs are Nodes that offer the Academany program.
Students view and participate in global lectures broadcasted every Wednesdays at 9:00 am – 12:00 pm EST. The lectures are recorded and available to students throughout the semester. In addition to the lectures, there are 2 / 3 lab days each week where students have access the lab equipment and personal help with projects. Each Fab Lab will establish the schedule for these Lab days.
Academany faculty, who are leaders in their respective fields, provide video lectures, supervise academic content, and guide research. Hands-on instruction in the labs is provided by instructors who supervise and evaluate Certificates, develop and disseminate instructional material, and assist with projects.
