The Youth Symposium is the Science Gallery Network’s annual gathering of advisers, Mediators, staff members, and core audiences. 2021’s iteration was titled BOREDOM REBELLION, and its programme invited people to break monotonous routines and create together in a virtual space.
Science Gallery Bengaluru participated by organising Contagious Ideas, a three-day design lab in which participants cooked up new ideas and experimented with them. Alongside the Science Gallery Team and peers from around the world, participants selected and worked on a design challenge from ideation all the way through to testing.
