Presentation for BPF
Today, we had a great opportunity to introduce our project to the industry and pitch for sponsorship at the British Plastics Foderation's conference.
Part of our team drove down to Birmingham to do a presentation at the conference, which was held at the Ramada Encore. The trip was great and the presentation went excellent!
Here's a few pictures of the day:

In addition to this amazing opportunity, some of the team will also spend the weekend in London, at the annual UCL iGEM teams meeting, with teams from all over the UK. There, they will have also have to present and introduce our project as well as participate in many other iGEM related activities, like workshops and feeback exercises. For more information about the event, check out their website: http://synbiosoc.org/ysb/
Since the team will be busy this week, attending and preparing for these exciting events, we have decided to postpone our sponsored walk until the 24th of July. Despite the postponement, the event is still very much happening and will be live streamed as promised. We are also very grateful to everyone for their donations and support!
