The sprawling green campus of the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), which is otherwise a silent serene premises, came alive on Saturday with thousands of students and visitors from across the State.

As part of the Open Day celebrations 2016, the institute doors were open to visitors. Students from over 300 schools and colleges, researchers and enthusiasts from various walks of life were welcome to visit the various departments and have a look at their creations. For a few school students, it was an educational tour, for the others, it was an opportunity to witness everything real time.

The Open Day is an annual event that marks the birthday of the founder of IISc, J N Tata, which falls on March 3. The event also marked National Science Day, which falls on February 28.

Several books published by IISc were on sale and display at the Tata Book House. ‘Salaam to Kalam,’ a photo exhibition on former President, the late Dr A P J Abdul Kalam, was among the other attractions.

Over 45 departments had displayed posters, research work and working models to help students understand the work happening at the IISc.

The biochemistry, microbiology and cell biology departments and the Centre for Infectious Disease Research put out all information on microbes. Experiments such as the Flow Experiment, Faraday Cage and Optics experiment were conducted in the Physics department.

The civil engineering department and aerospace department drew a good number of people with their devices on display. For schoolchildren, the Unmanned Aero Vehicles were the icing on the cake.
