Arincheyan Gerald and Karan Abrol of Inventure at the IRIS ( Initiative for Research and Innovation in Science) National Fair, 2009.
Karan Abrol and Arincheyan Gerald-The Young Scientists from Inventure.
Arincheyan Gerald and Karan Abrol are among the 80 shortlisted entries ( from over 1200) for participation at the IRIS ( Initiative for Research and Innovation in Science) National Fair, 2009.
This year IRIS is being held in the city of Ahmedabad, between 25-28th November, 2009.
Arin and Karan's study deals with an analysis of colour spectra in Hemidactylus leschenaultii and frenatus or very simply, what causes colour changes in these 2 species of gecko lizards. They were able to prove that colour does indeed change according to the presence of a predator, habitat and time of day.
We wish our budding researchers all the best!!
