The result, 100% respondent showed an interest to study synthetic biology and thought that synthetic biology could be used to solve problems especially for problems in Indonesia. 17.24% of the respondent wanted to solve health problems through synthetic biology and 13.79% from the respondent wanted to solve environment problems. 62% respondent thought that energy problems could be solved through synthetic biology.

Survey about plastic issue that will be brought by team ITB_Indonesia to iGEM competition in Boston was also take place in this activity.
