The story of Break it Down starts in 2015. Three friends decide to start an open biolab dedicated to making biosciences more accessible for everyone.We took a two-way approach: provide access to the machines and make the scientific knowledge to use them understandable for anyone.
The idea for ReaGent was born.
We put together a professional lab with machines we built ourselves as well as second hand machinery.Flash forward and the nonprofit biolab now houses a vibrant community of citizen scientists that organises events, does small research projects, informs people about science and launched a national nonprofit dedicated to child education in bio sciences for underprivileged groups: Ekoli.
We learned a whole bunch about science communication in all its forms.Sharing these lessons was a logical next step in our mission to make science accessible for everyone. That’s why we launched Break it Down.
