The concept of the carnival inspired MyBio Carnival in Malaysia, a week-long event for students and parents, as well as the general public. It aimed to introduce the wonders of cscience in a playful, relaxing and participative mode. MyBio Carnival involved a series of activities - debates, quizzes, spelling competition, poster drawing, essay writing, seminars, exhibits and a fashion show. Public education was fostered through play, hands on experience, and interaction with peers and experts without the formality of the classroom and rigidness of a structured learning process. Biotechnology thus forwarded as a fun and pragmatic science rather than a field difficult to understand.
