Microculture, a SXSW game about synthetic biology and community-building

If you were at SXSW and visited the MIT Media Lab lounge, you might have taken part in Microculture, the interactive synthetic biology card game that Colleen and her students designed in collaboration with Media Lab alumnus and synthetic biologist David Kong. The game simultaneously forced people to interact with strangers while educating them on the importance of microbiomes in our environment.
