An ideathon is a short, intensive, brainstorming event to help young talents generate fresh solutions to existing challenges in their communities. Participants work in teams and use innovative ideation practices such as design thinking to brainstorm on possible solutions. Students register for an ideathon with a blank slate — they cannot bring in a university project. Once a student has found a team, they enter the brainstorming phase. After collectively deciding on an idea to work on, students on the team spend a majority of the event transforming this idea from concept into reality. Ideathon teams bring a project from epiphany to completion all within a time constraint. They present us their ideas on the game day. Winners are chosen and prizes are dealt.
Ideathon 1.0, is an idea pitching event organised for the students of Department of Computer Engineering and Computer Applications with the help of MANAN, the technosurge. The central idea of the event is to unlock the hidden innovation underlying among the students using modern technologies.
