Why this Event?

Based on the overwhelming response and request from participants of NSF 2017 RiiiT has scheduled Techathon which is a 24 hour Endurance Check for innovative youths.

Students nowadays have humongous amount of information at their finger tips through internet, all they need is the basic exposure to certain fields they are interested but are unaware. The rest they will find it themselves to feed their curiosity. So instead of giving a deep concept based lecturing on a topic this time we are trying to relate those topics with its applications, advantages and telling them “why it matters to you?” rather than telling “what is the matter?”. The sessions will be brief yet informative which aims at making students more curious on continuing learning even after the event.
