Biodesign Challenge 2024

Parsons School of Design and the Museum of Modern Art

This year, 50+ schools across 15 countries will participate in Biodesign Challenge, an international education program for high school and college students that introduces the intersection of biotechnology, art, and design and connects them to a global network of leaders in academia, industry, and entrepreneurship who are defining the field of biodesign. BDC aims to pioneer, envision, create, and critique transformational applications in biotech.

2024 Schools

Additionally, we are introducing a new chapter in BDC’s story: the First Annual Biodesign Symposium! This day-long conference, held on June 12, 2024 at Parsons School of Design, will focus on building infrastructure around biodesign research and education, centering the question “How do we grow a Biodesigner?” It will include keynote speakers, group discussions, and opportunities to present research.
