Our campus has a new outreach program under the Science and the City initiative: the BLiSc Science Cafe (BLiSc = Bangalore Life Science Cluster). I will kick off this program with a talk at MyBoTree in Kormangala, Bangalore, this coming Sunday (11 am, June 24). Come hear about the exciting world of microbes that live with and within us, and how they have shaped life on earth!
The Science Cafe is a series of monthly science talks across cafes, bookstores, social, public and performative spaces in Bangalore. The idea is to bring down barriers between science and the public, take advantage of informal environments to discuss our science, and share what we do in a space that is less academic but more relaxed. Events are open to all, so drop by!
Update: This was a really fun event, and I really enjoyed interacting with the fantastic audience. I didn’t know when the scheduled hour passed; the crowd was very curious and wanted to know more! You can view a recording of the talk here.
