HiveBio would like to thank everyone for their inquiries! We are excited to see the community in a buzz about signing up for memberships and classes and participating in DIY science!
We will be hosting a Prospective Member Orientation Continue reading
Stay tuned for our second event in a series of discussions involving intellectual property and biology. Conducting your own experiments using new molecular and genetic technologies in a citizen science environment seems innocent, but it may have legal implications, especially if it involves commercialization.
Gary Myles, Ph.D. and attorney at law will give a lecture and host a discussion about the Supreme Court’s Decision on the Association for Molecular Pathology vs Myriad Genetics, Inc case. In this ruling it was decided that isolated DNA Continue reading

HiveBio would like to thank the participants of our first DIY Digital Microscope workshop! We successfully turned 9 participants’ smartphones and 1 flip phone into digital microscopes by assembling a stand using wood, plexiglass, a few bolts, and securing the lens from a laser pointer into this assembly. The aparatus is light-weight, easy to take around with you, and has a convenient staging area for placing slides and random items to view.
Drilling and assembling the stands.
These stands can be stored easily at home, and taken out whenever you want to look at something up close! They are great for general curiosity, and children will love exploring up close – bugs, leaves, food – you name it! The best part is being able to take photos and video using the smartphone’s digital camera. What will you do with your photos? Put them on your website? Turn them into holiday cards?
Check out our photo page to see some photos of the assembly and use of these Digital Microscope conversion stands!
Who doesn’t love looking at cells, plants, dirt, and other random findings under a microscope? Don’t have one? Make your own setup using your smartphone for $10 in materials! Continue reading
