The Ahmedabad Hub is working to end taboos around menstruation by making connections between science and this essential biological process. The Science Period project includes awareness workshops in schools using fun cartoon characters and a design challenge. As part of the design challenge, students create a do-it-yourself kit using everyday materials to explain the biological process of menstruation. The goal is to normalize the conversation around menstruation while providing vital information around hygiene and disposal practices
Ahmedabad Hub worked to end harmful menstrual taboos in Gujarat by connecting science to this essential biological process. Through Science Period, 400 young girls conducted science experiments to learn about their reproductive systems and build working models to deepen understanding and awareness.
