Collaborative Event - Visit to TCIS by KVRSS awardee children

TIFR Centre for Interdisciplinary Sciences (TCIS), Hyderabad, has come forward to host some of the awardee children along with the science teachers on 27th May, 2017. The programme started with a brief presentation about TIFR and its activities by Dr. Manish Jaiswal. Dr Manish and Dr. Aprotim Mazumder interacted with students and answered all their queries. This was followed by visits to six major labs of TIFR, which included the Fluoroscence Lab, the Optics Lab, the Fruit fly lab, the NMR Lab, the Wet Lab and the Karthik's Lab. We would like to thank Prof. M. Barma, Prof. Jayashree Ramadas and all the faculty of TCIS for the initiative as this is an excellent opportunity for the students to have a glimpse of the cutting edge research that happens in such Indian Research Institutions and generate interest in Science as a career. The kids were highly impressed with the laboratories they visited and the interactive session which followed to discuss some of the projects done by the children proved highly beneficial to the children.
