Young scientists present their creative projects at WitBlox Young Inventor 2020 organized by Techfest IIT Bombay
India has always been the land of inventors. Indians, the masters of jugaad (makeshift), can match and even outperform anyone in the world when it comes to solving problems creatively, frugally and sustainably. The Indian startup and innovation landscape has seen young inventors blossom over the past few years. A few months ago, WitBlox, a Robotics Ed-Tech startup based in Mumbai in collaboration with Techfest IIT Bombay started the competition — WitBlox Young Inventor Techfest 2020. The competition was aimed to harness the creative ability among the young minds of this generation. To participate in this competition, the students had to find an idea based on any one of the 4 themes — Safe Community Living, Innovation in Farming, Kitchen Automation & Home Automation and submit their prototype projects on the WitBlox App.
