Our team has inspired a lot. With the biology department of our institution we have organized periodic events called “Café Bio”. In these events we invited people earning their living by biology and we asked them to present their own expertise in biology. Café Bio was an important part of our journey because we succeeded in inspiring people who are interested in biology and we showed them people who are versed in different fields of biology.
The main reason we wanted to organize this event is because we thought that biology was not only like what was mentioned in the books. Here are the some of the invitees that came to Café Bio
