The annual Science and Technology festival of IIT Bombay, Techfest was held from 3 to 5 January, 2020. The team of managers and one overall coordinator spearheaded events round the year ranging from social initiatives like the Bone Health Campaign to the online crypt hunt Segreta. They also raised awareness about captivating existing and upcoming technologies through their Facebook page.
This year, Techfest offered a wide spectrum of exhibitions, competitions, workshops and lectures. The Technoholix concert with AFISHAL as headliner, the exhibition showcasing ‘AeroHans’ - India’s first indigenous air taxi and the lecture by Hanson Robotics’ ‘Einstein Robot’ were the highlights of the show, to name a few.
Its humble seeds sown in 1998 to provide a platform for the Indian student community to develop and showcase their technical prowess, Techfest has now grown into Asia's Largest Science and Technology Festival with a footfall of 1.75 lakhs in its latest edition.
