For the non-CES followers of our blog
Indian Institute of Science (IISc) organises Open Day every year for interested people to visit the Institute and get a feel of the research that is carried out in different departments. This year Open Day is being organised on 2nd March, Saturday.
We will start our day with ‘Nature trails’, where some of the Naturalists hidden in our midst will meander into the campus foliage. The trail begins near the IISc Main building at 9 am and again at 4pm. Documentaries pertaining to Ecological research, conservation and wildlife will be screened at 10am, 12pm and 2pm. Treasure Hunt, where we teach the use of field biology instruments by tracking a snake toy, will run throughout the day at 30 minute intervals. Each lab will be presenting their work with the help of brief presentations and live exhibits and demonstrations throughout the day. Learning games such as ‘Who Eats Who’ (a puzzle of trophic levels) and Guess the Sound (guess animal vocalizations) will give away souvenir stickers to the ‘winners’!
