FAQs

If you have a question that is not answered here, please get in touch with us!

  1. Are your sessions conducted in person?

No, as of now our sessions are completely online! This means you can join us from the safety of your own home!

2. How long are the sessions?

The weekly sessions run for about an hour, from 5 - 6 pm. Sometimes a little longer, when the discussion takes a life of its own!

3. What platform is used to conduct your sessions online?

Currently, we use a subscription-based Zoom platform to conduct all our sessions.

4. Are your sessions live or pre-recorded?

All our sessions are live! This means our young minds get to interact in real-time with working scientists, and ask questions directly throughout the sessions. Using the chat window as well as direct conversation, the scientist-founders' and guest scientists interact and answer questions live.

We do have a select library of recorded sessions, after they have been edited for privacy and clarity.

5. How can I find out about each session?

We announce the upcoming session (on Saturday) the previous week, and share the poster and registration details on our website here. We also post it on our Twitter and Facebook pages.

If you want to get an email for each of our sessions, you can sign up to our mailing list here (we assure you we will not spam your inbox with multiple emails)!

6. How do I register for each session?

On our website or through our mailing list, you will find a registration link for each session. Once you fill in the details and register, you will get an email with details of how to join the meeting on Zoom. Registration is mandatory to join the session.

7. How do you take care of privacy concerns in the online platform?

We ensure that only those who have registered with proper details as required in the registration link are allowed to enter the zoom meeting.

Participants join via a waiting room that is monitored by the hosts (scientist-founders').

The meeting room is closed (by the host) 10 minutes after the start of the session.

Chat between participants is disabled.

In our sessions, all participants are free to switch off their videos.

We do record our sessions and upload select sessions after they have been edited to anonymize/depersonalize participants.

We are very cognizant of the privacy of our young minds and the uploaded sessions do not compromise their identity, location or information in anyway.

When we reach our Zoom Limit, we stream our sessions live on YouTube. If you have registered for the session, you will receive the YouTube link via email.
