With the theme “घर घरमा प्रविधि” locus aim to encourage students and all participants in general to come up with ideas and innovations that are both cost-effective and efficient so that they can be used by people in their daily lives. It will be as exciting as it is challenging for the participants and that the final projects showcased in the competition will be viable for day to day usage. The aim of this theme is to channel focus on technology that matters, technology that makes a difference, however small it may be. It is an attempt towards change that is immediately apparent, as opposed to having participants see their projects collect dust after the event. It aims to encourage development of smart devices (for example efficient emergency lights, power usage trackers to name a few), smart plans and schemes, smart phone apps, online services and the like. We believe that if we work toward solving the problem that is visible in the moment, in our homes and daily lives, we can attack the bigger issue of sustainable development and positive change in the country one small step at a time.
