Always wanted to know what your view on the world actually comprises of? And interested to know where you stand in comparison to others? The Frame Reflection Lab helps you to discover your own and other people’s worldview, and views on Synthetic Biology in particular. In the Frame Reflection Lab you can explore the roots of your thoughts in a playful manner. The lab is a controlled social environment where everything is possible and allowed, so the potential consequences of your thoughts and actions are kept to a minimum.

By participating in the lab, you will explore why people clash when talking about Synthetic Biology, (controversial) science, and new technologies in general. We make you play with several techniques to embrace the diversity of world views that people adhere to; an essential skill for all scientists and innovators in the making.
