Tuesday, April 16th 1-3pm
Instructors: Owen Coolidge & Matt Halpenny, with Alex Bachmayer
Slime mold is a biological wild card capable of forming networks of emergent behaviour and intelligence out of single cells. Their colonies have collective memory banks and sophisticated problem solving skills, allowing them to act as mini biocomputers. Along with their efficient computing capabilities, slime molds communicate via tiny channels that can be turned into basic biocircuits with regenerative wiring.
In this 2-hour workshop, participants will culture their own slime mold, create circuits making use of their conductive properties, and explore how they can be used to develop complex network models.
Open to Milieux cluster members and Concordia students.
Spaces are limited, RSVP required.
