Event Description

Discovering Life: A Journey into Life Sciences (13-18 yrs)

Introducing students to Life Sciences through immersive workshops cultivates a profound comprehension of biological concepts. These workshops encompass a range of activities aimed at honing students' scientific skills and fostering critical thinking. Through hands-on experiences like laboratory techniques, microbial culture preparation, and observation under specialized microscopes, students develop a keen eye for detail and analytical prowess. By exploring topics such as photosynthesis and plant biology through chlorophyll extraction and pigment observation, students gain a holistic perspective on life sciences.

In the course of this workshop, children will learn:

  • Dissection and study of flower through Zoom stereo microscope
  • Preparation of microbial culture media
  • Isolation of microorganisms from the air
  • Simple staining of isolated bacteria 
  • Tests of carbohydrates and proteins
  • Extraction of chlorophyll and observation of different pigments

Workshop conducted by Birla Industrial & Technological Museum (BITM) in Kolkata

Birla Industrial & Technological Museum (BITM) in Kolkata, the first science museum in the country under the National Council of Science Museums (NCSM), Ministry of Culture, Govt. of India, is engaged in popularizing and promoting science especially among the youth through various interactive models, exhibitions, educational programmes and activities throughout the year.

BITM facilities are specifically designed to augment the learning curves of the students not only on curricular concepts in basic physics, chemistry, mathematics, biology, astronomy, electricity, electronics etc., but also on current topics of interest in science & technology and related social issues.
