Hephaestus, the blacksmith created weapons, thrones, pieces of armour all while using metals
and fire. Arachne transformed cotton into beautiful tapestries. Daedalus fabricated Icarus’ wings
using nothing but feathers and wax.
Do you have the imagination to transform a box of useless components into a working masterpiece?
To unite the fluidity of a creative mind and the concreteness of science, this event requires participants to develop a logical solution to a given problem, in the form of a working model, using the components supplied to them.
Rules & Regulations
- 24 hours will be given to work on your problem statement after which, presentations will commence.
The evaluation will take place in two phases:
- Starts at 11:00 AM, the next morning.
- Duration of presentation: 5 minutes.
- Present your Problem Statement, basic research and the list of components you shall be requiring.
- Starts after 6:00 PM, the next day.
- Duration of presentation: 8 minutes (5 minutes for presentation, 1 minute for showing the simulation and 2 minutes for Q & A Round.)
- Present your whole idea around the Problem Statement along with the simulation of your prototype.
- Evaluation One:
- The decision of the organizers in declaring the results will be final. No queries in this regard will be entertained.
Hackatronics was by far the most thrilling event for me. The problem statements were chosen such that we could clearly see how a solution we derive could actually make a difference in the real world. Working with my team the whole night, discussing the various possibilities, it felt like our collective imagination woven with our technical skills had no bounds. I’m sure to participate in this event next year too.
