It is a high momentum competition, a well-organized event by the Techniche team. I feel so fortunate to have had this opportunity to compete among talented people from different fields; from biosciences to manufacturing, the range of fields that were explored during the event was amazing.

It was a really intuitive experience. Professors and visitors were eager to know about our projects, and their many queries made us realize some important aspects that we could work on in the future. Judges were patient and humble, they were from different fields and were ever ready to help us brainstorm and improvise on many different dimensions of our project.
