Veronca Rodrigues and Rockefeller, what is the connection

Most people think biologists only do biology. But oftentimes, they have to develop technology and get on to design and fabrication of experimental equipment. This inspiring tweet is a great lesson to know that no experimental scientist can ignore design and fabrication, and a strong argument to do training of students in STEM education instead of focussing on content.

@TIFRScience had a terrific one till recently. They could make any shape and fit and you could watch them. Artistes! Artisans. Scientists. Here is Veronica Rodrigues with a Y-maze she and Siddiqi designed and got made. @pollyp1 will like it :-) pic.twitter.com/Qo0g1lIcKl
