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.

The exhibit formed an enclosed space with the exterior resembling an old rock room and once the visitor enters the room, they explore the various cultures that Peepal Tree is a part of through the wall painings and the collaterals.
The roof was designed to create beautiful leaf shadows similar to that of sitting under an actual peepal tree.
