Had a fabulous summer course on Evolutionary Biology & Infectious Disease with school students organised by Ashoka_X

It was great to teach this pre-college Evolutionary Biology & Infectious Disease summer course for school students (7th-11th Grade) on “Darwinian Dilemmas of the Pandemic Century”. Very new experience altogether. Enjoyed those open ended discussion/ ultra curiosity on why some animals become carriers of severe disease-causing viruses but do not fall ill themselves? How did this ability originate and develop and how did they become different from humans? How might climate change and rapid human-made destruction of ecosystems affect these processes? Thanks AshokaX & Ashoka University. Thanks Hansika Chabra for being a superb TA
