Event Description

Mice have been our lab rats, quite literally, for hundreds of years now. We have mice labs in the basements of most laboratories, in highly regulated and controlled environments. Explore all the things we've done to them to try to make them live longer — from sewing an old mouse and a young mouse together so their circulatory systems combine, to freezing them and microwaving them alive in the 1950s, to dosing them with diabetes drugs. Sometimes weird, sometimes gross, sometimes promising, but always entertaining.

About RadLab
RadLab is a low-key workshop series for sharing totally rad projects, ideas, and experiences. Since our launch in 2020, we've hosted over thirty student presentations covering topics like fringe art movements, sneaker manufacturing, interactive fiction, creative coding, amateur astronomy, combat robots, and much much more.
