As a part of Techniche, the annual techno-management festival of IIT Guwahati, the student fraternity of the institute has once again organized Technothlon, an international school championship which aims to ‘Inspire Young Minds’. The Prelims for the 2019 edition of Technothlon will be held on July 14. The students who qualify to the Mains will be invited to the IIT Guwahati campus during Techniche from August 29 to September 1, where they will contest in more challenging rounds, trying to bag the champions’ title.
Technothlon is the ultimate test of logic where students from classes 9th to 12th compete with their logical and creativity skills to win the Grand Prize. Conducted in two phases – Prelims and Mains, Technothlon 2018 witnessed a huge participation. The top 50 teams from each squad are invited for the next round – Mains which is held during Techniche at IIT Guwahati.
Recognizing the dire need for technical exposure and true inspiration for the present-day school students, Technothlon’s first edition was held in Guwahati in 2004. 15 years later, Technothlon has become an event which serves as an able platform to expose the innovation and creativity of a student in all its rawness and is now held in more than 400 cities.
The winners of Technothlon 2018 from each squad received a guided tour of NASA and the runners up receive a guided tour of ISRO. The prizes of Technothlon 2019 remain the same.
