The Workshops

Our modules are specifically designed to help participants build an analytical approach and introduce them to the subject of research. The courses have been meticulously prepared to give participants a full overview of the topics in the most engaging manner. To make the experience more intriguing and engaging, the workshops are organized and implemented by the students. Despite being held virtually in 2021 - due to the COVID pandemic – we could engage with digital footfalls through the canvas of the workshops. And this year's event promises to be even bigger and better! The core objective for conducting these workshops is to stimulate and develop a research-oriented approach in students as well as provide them with an environment which pushes them to investigate and explore new perspectives. 

 

Decoding Life

“Enough with the spiritual ways of Decoding Life, let's give science a shot!”

The study of the molecular basis of biological activity in and between cells, including molecular synthesis, modification, mechanism, and interactions, is known as molecular biology. In essence, molecular biology is the study of the chemical and physical structure of biological macromolecules.

“Decoding Life” is a workshop that helps the participants understand macromolecules like protein and why they are important for our body and how they interact. The workshop will enable the participants to gain hands-on experience and a deeper understanding as they isolate the proteins and perform the quantification by using an electrophoresis technique known as sodium dodecyl sulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE), and other analytical techniques.

Life In Bytes

“Let's just become genome friendly!”

Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary science that focuses on developing methods and software tools for analysing biological data. It's a hybrid science that combines biological data with information storage, dissemination, and analysis techniques. The analysis of these data leads to scientific breakthroughs and the discovery of novel clinical applications. We live in the computational supremacy era and bioinformatics is one of the quintessential components of the contemporary biological world. This workshop module aims to train students to analyse the complex molecular interactions in a cell with the help of industry-standard software. The participants will learn bioinformatics tools like Sequences Homology to Homology Modelling that aid in the generation, comparison, and analysis of genetic and genomic data and more generally in the understanding of the interaction of the evolutionary aspects of molecular biology.

World at Nanoscale

“Nothing goes unnoticed under that microscope, scanning for even those tiny details!”

Nanotechnology is the construction and engineering of functional systems at an extremely minute scale, or at the atomic level. It is the ability to observe, measure, manipulate, assemble, control and manufacture matter at the nanometre scale.

In this module, we’ll be looking at the world on a nanoscale. The participants will gain practical experience of some highly sophisticated and advanced cutting-edge instruments and will involve synthesizing gold nanoparticles and viewing them under an electron microscope; followed by using the principles of dynamic light scattering to characterize and measure the size of their nanoparticles. We will use two instruments which are exemplars of fully-featured preparation facilities: Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) to observe various biological and material samples.

Food Detectives

“Let’s explore if the food you eat is what it claims to be?”

In order to ensure high quality and competitive products, scientific principles and new technologies are being applied to food manufacturing; and the body of knowledge required is called Food Science.

Here's the chance to discover and unveil the secrets about the food you intake daily!

This time on the ‘Food Detectives’ workshop is all about fun and mind-boggling experiments that would help participants discover threats to food safety as well as to dig in deep by quantifying several food products. This workshop will facilitate an insight into day-to-day food phenomena like oxidation of fruits, staling of bread, adulteration in milk, and much more.

The Identity Hint

“Have you ever had whimsical fantasies of being a detective but never thought they would come true? Not anymore!”

Forensic science, also known as criminalistics is the application of science to the judicial system. Forensic scientists collect and analyse evidence from crime scenes and other locations in order to produce objective results that can aid in the investigation and prosecution of criminals or exonerate an innocent person.

This exhilarating workshop module introduces participants to the realm of forensics. Participants will explore and learn about techniques such as Dactylography, Document Analysis, and many more. After all, you know what they say … at the end of the day, all criminals leave some evidence behind. The cherry on the top is solving a crime scene all on your own by applying the techniques taught throughout the workshop. See you at the crime scene, Sherlock Homes!

Knowing Thyself

“Are you ready for this journey of solving your personality puzzle with us?”

This year we introduce you to a new addition, “Knowing Thyself”, a workshop on personality psychology. Personality psychology, is a branch of psychology that examines personality and the question that why does it differ among individuals. It shows how we all are so different due to psychological forces.

Attending this workshop will enable you to dig deeper into your own personality by providing you with insights about why you behave the way you do. It will give you an integrated view of the functioning individuals in their daily environments. And since personality is such a widespread topic, personality psychologists have no excuse for being boring, trust us!
