The Association of Teachers in Biological Sciences is glad to announce the launch of a national level competition for innovative biology experiments. The competition will be held every year and is open to any person who is above 18 years of age and is enthusiastic to design and work on such experiments. The proposed experimental design should reflect novelty and innovative approach. Also, the experiments to be submitted for the competition should be easily doable in a regular undergraduate lab. Hence, use of sophisticated and expensive instruments should be avoided.
The timeline, guidelines and details regarding the competition will be uploaded on the website of ATBS (www.atbs.in) in June/July every year. The intent of participation needs to be communicated by filling in a registration form along with a registration fee of Rs. 100/-. Details regarding the payment of the registration fee as well as the soft copy of the registration form will be available on the website from the 15th of July, 2017. This year the last date for registration would be 28th August, 2017. Ten finalists, selected by a panel of judges, would be invited to Mumbai tentatively in the first half of November to demonstrate their experiments. Prizes would be given to three of the best entries amongst the selected 10 entries.
