Prakash’s EDUCARE TECHNOTHLON

Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati opens its door to the high school students all over India during its annual techno-management festival Techniche'10 with TECHNOTHLON- The International School Championship. We say with extreme pride that we are the only IIT that conducts an event of this magnitude for the school going students of grade 9-12 !! Technothlon has become an alias for an event which brings out the hidden technocrat within every student who participates in it. It serves as an able platform to expose the innovation and creativity of a student in all its rawness. With events ranging from Robotics to constructing structures to being a technical detective etc, we ensure that each and every aspect of the competitor's mind is tested to the extreme. Also the electrifying atmosphere of one of the nation's biggest technical festival - TECHNICHE, adds to the glamour of the event !!
