|The inauguration of Techweekend|
Easily one of the most exciting, and wonderful events since the start of the new year, the four day tech fiesta was organized by the IEEE Student Branch Manipal.
The event was inaugurated in style, in the Library Auditorium of the MIT library. on the 2nd of Feb.
|The bridge builder competition at Kc|
The Computex events lured hardcore programmers from all years, and tested the coding and debugging skills. Electronica hosted events like logic quest, shape shifters and Matlab challenge, which tested the expertise of logic gates, Matlab and wave forms. The Mechatronix events stole the show with bridge builders and Automatic Ground Vehicles that is, Line follower bots. The Royal Mech had Submarine designing and related events, and last but not the least, the Contour category had fun events like Photo quest, Artisan and Mind your Machine.
The tech events were both rewarding and fun in more ways than one.With participants from outside colleges as well, this was certainly a brilliant platform to share ideas, put forth their innovation, and learn from one another.
|Informals at KC|
An inseparable part of Techweekend however was the ‘Informals’ held everyday at KC. On the other side of the world altogether, there were games like ‘7 up, 7 down’ , ‘Cube it’ and ‘Gubbara Splash’. The ‘Informals’ attracted huge crowds in the evening, what with the loud music playing in the background, and song dedications all over the place. One of our organizers commented “For once the boys found something better than the girls at K.C…“.
The group photos and the cutting of the cake marked the end of one hell of a time that was this years techweekend. As the soulful and vibrant crowd on the sunday night started clearing, and as us volunteers started winding up the last time for long, we were left wanting to come back for more.
The Techweekend v11.02 was Technovation Unleashed, to say the least.
