Led by my curiosity I attended The Open Science Network's introduction lab - The Cloning Wars, Episode 1: The Cut tonight and had a lot of fun. If you live in or around Vancouver, B.C. I can really recommend going if you are at all interested in learning about DNA and basic lab skills. The Open Science Network is a Community Bio (hacking) lab, with a lot of skill, and a very friendly attitude towards people like me who show up with only the faintest idea of what the bio scene has to offer.
Like I wrote, loads of fun, and quite interesting.
