1000 Young Scientists can’t be wrong!

by Shannon  – On Friday, November 16, 2018, our Bangalore Life Science Cluster, which includes NCBS, inStem, and C-Camp, entertained roughly 1000 visitors to our campus for “Science Day“.  Each lab and faculty presented an exhibit to highlight the type of research we are doing, and perhaps teach a bit about biology in the process. The NICE Group participated in three exhibits, as you can see below. As an evaluation, we also worked with the Communications Team to create a small exhibit where students wrote a word they learned or were excited about from the day.  Judging by the words they chose, I think our day was a huge success and I congratulate the hundreds of volunteers who made this very fun and informative day possible – what a great way to show the public what we do!
