This is the picture of the Montessorians who attended the workshop by Dr K N Gandhi at the Botany Department, Bangalore University. They are accompanied by Dr. Vijayalakshmi from the Botany Department, National College, Basavanagudi. Dr. Vijayalakshmi has always supported the propagation of scientific knowledge in the local community.
Dr. Gandhi is an alumni of Bangalore University, a noted taxonomist who is currently working at the Harvard Herbarium. Though his workshop mainly dealt with the way in which the names of Families, Genera and Species were derived, a lot of interesting information was shared. These nuggets are valuable to anyone working with children in the Primary classes. We will be sharing some of them in this page over time.’
