Ideas to begin with

We encourage you to submit impactful ideas that reflect passion and creativity. The outreach can be done via virtual events or the dissemination of e‑resources and is to be carried out in English. If there is a scope and a need, resource materials can be translated into Indian languages. The disseminated material should carry the IBS logo and would be a copyright of IBS falling under the Creative Commons license. The material should be not-for-profit and should not be distributed for commercial purposes. 

Below is a subset of topics (not exhaustive) to help you get started:

  • Explainer videos and virtual science lab for school students
  • Cartoons and infographics on topics of relevance to health including but not limited to the current outbreak
  • Conducting interactive sessions for the public to interact with scientists etc.
  • Reinvent networking for scientists on a digital platform
  • Efforts to highlight achievements in Indian science
  • Ideas to improve gender sensitization in scientific communities
  • Improved local sharing of scientific ideas and resources etc. 
  • Engaging the public to do at-home experiments — output could be in the form of a short movie or a popular book
  • Setting up e‑coloring books with elementary life science subject matter
  • Facilitating local communities to take part in crowd-sourced scientific projects
  • Hosting periodic podcast or webinars or discuss/​share relevant scientific principles, advances and research needs
