April Fools in the KINSC

This year, for the holiday, the Koshland Integrated Natural Sciences Center was transformed into Hawkins, Indiana; Westeros; and more!

Every year, in the dead of night, the Koshland Integrated Natural Sciences Center (KINSC) gets an April Fool’s Day makeover. For the past 10 years, senior natural sciences majors have celebrated April 1—or 2, as was the case this year—by blowing off some steam with a brief foray into interior decoration, festooning hallways and classrooms with themed posters, banners, and other homemade decorations.

This year’s designs included biology’s homage to the classic Pixar children’s film Toy Story, chemistry’s Game of Thrones-themed tour of Westeros and beyond, math’s trip inside Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, physics’ journey to Mars, and psychology’s recreation of Stranger Things‘ Hawkins, Indiana (replete with string lights for communicating with the Upside Down).
