The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Guwahati, opened its door to schoolchildren throuugh its techno-management festival Techniche '10 with Technothlon - The International School Championship. The prelims were held at St. Stephen's School, Chandigarh, today. The competition was open to students from Class IX to XII. More than 500 students from different schools across the region reached the spot to take the test. There were two categories for participants- Junior squad (Class IX and X) and Hauts squad (Class XI and XII). Most of the students were of the view that the difficulty level of the tests was higher than they had expected.
Vikram Goyal, a student off IIT Guwahati and one of the organisers, said, "Known for perplexing puzzles, baffling sequences, charged atmosphere, brain-churning problems and loads of fun, Technothlon'09 was a success last year. Young talents from across the country participated in the competition. With the same enthusiasm Technothlon'10 is back with more surprises, exciting events ranging from Robotics to constructing structure to being a technical detective. We here strive hard to ensure that each and every bit of the participant's grey matter is used and expose the creativity and innovation."
