The BioDome Project (BDP)

About The BioDome Project (BDP)

With funding from Remake Learning’s Moonshot Grant, we are on a mission to create experimental, community-based STEM libraries — called BioDomes — for youth in Pittsburgh, PA. Inspired by the free community library model, these BioDomes will sit on accessible properties throughout the community, making their debut in the Hill District.

Each BioDome will be filled with both one-time and multi-use kits and experiments. Students will be able to use these kits to explore concepts in biology, anatomy, microbiology, microscopy, electronics, circuitry, and computer science.

The BioDome Project will help create and sustain a science-literate community and act as a cost-free way to engage youth in STEM education. While the ten BioDomes funded by the Moonshot Grant will be distributed throughout the Hill District, we hope that their impact will spread across the city, state, and country.

To succeed in our vision to design, build, judge, distribute, and further fund these BioDomes, we are calling upon local artists and the community. To get involved with this collaborative and impactful project, please email

As we watch visionaries fuel the next steps of space exploration, The Citizen Science Lab remains even more committed to its mission of increasing the number of underrepresented groups in the sciences. With that said, the theme of this year’s event is Flying Beyond Intergalactic Boundaries Through STEM!

To commemorate this universal mission, the event will feature some of the greatest MCs*: SLICK RICK, BIG DADDY KANE, DJ JAZZY JEFF, RAKIM, DAS EFX AND POSITIVE K, as part of the Masters of the Mic fundraising concert on May 29, 2022, at STAGE AE.
