BioBAT recently sat down with our neighbor, Genspace, to discuss our shared vision for a bio and tech hub in South Brooklyn. Like BioBAT, Genspace offers science programming to local youth. Together we can create a pipeline between South Brooklyn schools and the science and tech industry. We’re so excited to collaborate in the future!
BioBAT’s workforce development is inspiring young minds through its exciting STEAM camp
Come join us and discover the fun of science through STEAM activities for students
BioBAT’s most recent Fun Science Camp was held on February 21st and was attended by South Brooklyn students from grades 1 through 9. The kids enjoyed learning about how science can be used to make works of art through chemistry experiments.
The next Fun Science Camp will take place in Summer of 2019.
BioBAT will be ringing in the New Year by starting construction on a new suite of state-of-the-art wet labs and attractive offices. The build-out is expected to be completed in 2018, so interested companies should reach out to us now. Turn-key labs are available for immediate occupancy until the new space is tenant-ready.
The new labs and offices will offer waterfront views, access to a well-stocked core facility, and ample room for further expansion. Our HVAC system is equipped to support fume hoods, clean rooms, and BSL-2 facilities. Regular ferry service to Manhattan, South Brooklyn, and Rockaway is available from the adjacent Sunset Park pier.
NK Architects, a leading science and technology architecture firm, has signed on to design the upcoming construction at BioBAT. The space was previously renovated and refurbished by HOK and building engineers Kallen & Lemelson.
We’d like to thank the professionals at NK Architects, HOK, and Kallen & Lemelson. We appreciate your continued work in making BioBAT a world-class R&D center for life science excellence.
We look forward to a fantastic 2018, and again wish all a Happy Holiday Season!
BioBAT, the New York Science and Technology Center at the Brooklyn Army Terminal, is now a center for student science education and interactive learning.
This August, we launched our first series of educational events, a Youth Science Summer Camp to inspire kids through fun-filled exposure to science and engineering. The camp marks the start of BioBAT’s workforce development program.

SUNY Downstate Medical Center’s commitment to research and education goes beyond the Downstate campus, including all the way to the Brooklyn harbor, where its venture BioBAT at the Brooklyn Army Terminal is working to strengthen the city’s scientific community.
