Stanford University assistant professor of bioengineering Ingmar Riedel-Kruse’s laboratory focuses on lowering the barriers to life-science projects for people of all ages and backgrounds. Epitomizing the team’s approach is its recent open access hack of Lego Mindstorms robotics kits. The hack produced a liquid-handling mechanized miniature laboratory. With Lego already a key feature in many educational robotics programs, the Stanford team saw an opportunity to integrate the work with the wet sciences – biology, chemistry and medicine.
