Event Passports

These "passports" can be used at your Building with Biology event to help visitors keep track of everything they've done there—they can collect stamps to mark when they've talked to a scientist, asked a question about synthetic biology, shared an idea on the graffiti wall, or talked to a volunteer about the things they like or don't like about synthetic biology. The passport challenges visitors to collect as many stamps as possible.
