'''There are (at least) three main types of events we might consider:'''
+
==Archive==
-
* A public forum/seminar (See 'wonder dialogues',  we have a hold on the David Brower Center in Berkeley - 180 person capacity - for Nov 1st)
+
[[SBPWG:Discussion/Bay_Area_Science_Festival | Bay Area Science Festival]]
-
* A hand-on carnival-style event with hands-on activities/demos (See 'Discovery Days' - a huge carnival being run at AT&T park on Nov 6th)
+
-
* A science cafe - an informal discussion with a scientist at a bar/cafe (See the 'science pub crawl' being run on Nov 4th)
+
-
 
+
-
We might first explore a public forum event, as we have to act quickly on this if we'd like to keep the date/space.  At the last working group meeting there was some ideas about how to make a forum more fun and interactive than a normal lecture format, such as making it into a 'game show'.

-
*Megan Palmer
+
-
*Connie Lee
+
-
*Mike Fisher
+
-
*Danielle Ercek
+
-
*Jay Vowles
+

=====Public Forum Event v1=====
+
-
 
+
-
'''Please edit below with suggested speakers, topics and formats. Don't worry about changing things on this page - we can always revert to previous versions! Please also LIST YOUR NAME ALONGSIDE CHANGES so it is easy to track changes'''
+
-
 
+
-
 
+
-
'''Format General'''
+
-
* option 1: start with short presentations from ~6 (?) speakers introducing synthetic biology basics, applications, promises/myths, social/ethical dimensions etc , then break out into individual rooms for more intimate q&a with the speakers (Megan Palmer)
+
-
* option 2: presentation from a dynamic speaker who gives the synthetic biology overview, and then audience members have their choice of sessions to attend (Synthetic Biology and Human Health, Syn-biologically Produced Chemicals, Synthetic Biology vs. Nature, etc.)  Each session includes short talks from researchers aimed at a general audience with plenty of room for questions.  Audience free to move from session to session.  (Mike Fisher)
+
-
 
+
-
'''Format Option 1 v1''' (Megan Palmer)
+
-
 
+
-
I'm organizing as individual speakers/topics, but this could we have fewer speakers each talking about a subset of these topics (especially for the intro). Please feel free to change topics/ordering etc and suggest speakers who might be appropriate
+
-
 
+
-
*Speaker/Topic 1: Why do we want to engineer/build with biology?
+
-
*Speaker/Topic 2: What types of things are we building now? What types of things do we hope to build?
+
-
*Speaker/Topic 3: How do we go about building/engineering biology? Philosophies and approaches (Top-Down, Bottom-Up)
+
-
*Speaker/Topic 4: Who is building? (Highlight labs, industry, iGEM, DIY community)
+
-
*Speaker/Topic 5: What are some of the perceived risks, and how are we working to address them? (could couple a science writer with a scientist?)
+
-
*Speaker/Topic 6: What are some of the next big challenges?
+
-
*Speaker/Topic 7: How can YOU get involved, learn more etc? (i.e. So you wanna be a biological engineer??)
+
-
 
+
-
 
+
-
'''Possible Speakers'''
+
-
* Drew Endy (Megan Palmer)
+
-
* Jay Keasling (can't make it)
+
-
* Andrew Hessell (Megan P)
+
-
* Eri Gentry or others from Biocurious/DIY community (perhaps the folks from open PCR?)
+
-
* Stephen del Cardayre, LS9 (Mike Fisher)
+
-
* Wendell Lim, UCSF (Mike F)
+
-
 
+
-
 
+
-
'''Title/Framing Brainstorming'''
+
-
* Synthetic Biology: a beginner's guide to building with biology (Megan Palmer)
+
-
* Tomorrow's Biology, Today (Mike Fisher)
+
-
 
+
-
 
+
-
'''Notes/Comments'''
+
-
* It would be ideal to videotape presentations and get copies of materials that could be shared widely (for example, via uploading onto the SynBERC website) (Megan Palmer)
+
-
 
+
-
 
+
-
'''Examples/Materials of Other 'Synthetic Biology 101' Resources, Presentations etc to learn from'''
+
-
* [http://www.ars-synthetica.net/primer Ars Synthetic Synthetic Biology Primer] (Megan P)
+
-
* [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=niQ0kkgPxJk Andrew Hessell's Synthetic Biology Talk at Singularity University] (Megan P)
+
-
* [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtADBcxWpVg KQED Quest Video] (Megan P - this is a pretty great intro)
+
-
 
+
-
 
+
-
'''Additional Brainstorming'''
+
-
* We might also consider doing a video followed by discussion. For example, following a viewing of the [http://www.fieldtest.us/bio/videos/ synthetic biology documentary]
+
-
*Based on the excerpts, that is going to be a neat film! (Mike Fisher)
+
-
 
+
-
 
+
-
'''Other Possible Topics/Framings'''
+
-
* Life as we don't know it (Megan Palmer)
+
-
* Creating life: What can we do? What should we do? (Megan Palmer)
+
-
* Science Speed Dating (from group call June 1st) - have people go between rooms with different scientists
+
-
* Design your own microbe (Megan)
+
-
* Moderated panel discussion between scientists, ethicists, news people, govt officials / FBI ? (Megan)
+
-
* Mini iGEM  Jamboree (Megan)
+
-
 
+
-
 
+
-
'''Comments/Notes'''
+
-
* The iGEM world finals are Nov 5-7 at MIT so may conflict with some events
