An outward bound training was held on May 15 to 16, 2009, with the participants from the Center for Developmental Biology of IGDB. Nearly 120 teachers and students participated in this exercise. The training aimed to build team spirit among teachers and students in CDB, to encourage communication within labs, to exploit self-potential, and to establish self-confidence.
Teachers and students were divided into several groups, with about 20 people each group. In the two-day training, they took part in the activities including cross-country running, rowing, and space walking, etc. Teachers and students from different labs had a good opportunity for profound communications.
