During World Biotech Tour science festivals, the ambassadors played a key role in facilitating the Lab-in-a-Box activities and presenting their biotech topics to the public. At the end of the year, an ambassador was selected based on their active participation throughout the year and/or their biotech presentations to travel to Tokyo, Japan in 2017 to represent their science center in the project at the Science Centre World Summit (SCWS2017). Meet the 2016 ambassadors below and learn more about them by hovering over their names (the selected ambassador for SCWS2017 from each science center is indicated in yellow)
