About Us

The next generation of design requires cross-disciplinary collaborations to rethink foods, materials, textiles, medicines, products, and infrastructures so that they serve not only individuals, but entire cultures, ecosystems, and ultimately the planet. To foster these collaborations, the Biodesign Challenge (BDC), partners university and high school students with artists, designers, and scientists to envision the future of biotechnology and engage the public about its deeper implications.
