This is a Bangalore centric student event to provide a platform for students and faculty to get together. There are prizes worth Rs 40k to be won, so do consider competing!

Update: The 2018 competition was a lot of fun. As always, I was amazed to learn about the wide diversity of work in my field that is happening in Bangalore. For a brief glimpse of the event, watch this!
