The plan is to host a 3 day regional GOSH event in Toronto, Canada at Evergreen Brickworks. The event will take place midweek (e.g., Tuesday to Thursday) and will accommodate 50-80 participants. One of the primary goals is to bootstrap a local open-science hardware movement in the Great Lakes region, but we will also welcome applications from outside of the region (and will provide a limited number of travel grants).

We’re also planning 3-4 day post-GOSH, hands-on digital biology lab/workshop (Friday-Monday) where we’ll be hacking on microfluidics and spectrophotometers and developing field-portable water/agriculture test applications. This event will be hosted at a cottage ~2 hrs west of Toronto and can accommodate ~20 people.

The next step is to finalize dates. If you are interested in coming to either event, please indicate your preferred dates in the poll bellow. The poll will close on March 3rd so that we can book spaces.

  • July 2-4 (regional GOSH), July 5-8 (lab/workshop)
  • July 31-Aug 2 (regional GOSH), Aug 3-6 (lab/workshop)
  • Aug 6-8 (regional GOSH), Aug 9-12 (lab/workshop)

Hey Ryan,

I’m intrigued by your initiative, I think there’s potential for great collaboration and learning here. I’d message you directly on the site but I can’t seem to find our how. Shoot me an email, let’s chat. sebastian@incuvers.com

Hi Ryan,

Just planning some summer travel and would love to make this. Has there been any further progress on finalizing a date? Anything in particular I can help with (remotely from Victoria, BC).

Thanks!

Derek
