CONTAGION is Science Gallery Bengaluru’s first online exhibition-season, that invites visitors to explore the phenomenon of transmission of diseases, behaviours and emotions to make sense of our uncertain times. Through 16 interactive exhibits and more than 40 live programmes we invite our audience to engage with critical questions on contagious phenomena. The exhibition-season is freely accessible to everyone across the world and available in English and Kannada.
