Founded in 2015, Biodesign Challenge (BDC) is a nonprofit competition and education program that connects high school and university students with artists, designers, and biologists to critique, create, and envision the future of biotechnology. Students ideate and create designs that address topics in architecture, food, medicine, materials, fashion, and more. Each June, teams showcase their projects at the BDC Summit before a global audience, including 60 interdisciplinary judges who award the coveted Glass Microbe.
