A scene from Shrek with all the biology professors as different characters in Far Far Away.

April Fools’ in the KINSC

In keeping with tradition, students majoring across the Koshland Integrated Natural Sciences Center decorated their spaces in the building to look like The Hunger Games, video games, and more in honor of April Fools’ Day!

Who says scientists can’t be silly? Every year, senior majors in biology, chemistry, computer science, environmental studies, mathematics and statistics, physics and astronomy, and psychology—all of which are housed in campus’ Koshland Integrated Natural Sciences Center (KINSC)—take a break from their studies and pull a prank for April Fools’ Day. Students in each department pick a theme, and overnight, transform their section of the sprawling KINSC with handmade decorations. This year, they took inspiration from animated movies—including Shrek, Ratatouille, and Space Jam—video games, and The Hunger Games.
