Let’s face it, 2020 has put us in quite a pickle.
But does that mean all hope is lost?
Well... We're part of a world where scientists and top experts in medicine work around the clock to combat the COVID-19 virus,
making huge strides in their knowledge every single day!
A world that has come closer to taking off on a rocket to colonize Mars,
or perhaps to explore galaxies...
It is with the innovations of the future that we conquer the problems of today!
So what is today, but a little mountain at the end of which lies new advancements and inventions.
A new world awaits for open minds and creative thinkers,
so hop onto the fun filled journey that IBeTo will take you on and let the innovations inside you come to life!
Innovations for a Better Tomorrow (IBeTo) is a technical innovations competition hosted by Govt. Model Engineering College, Kochi as part of their annual national-level technical symposium, Excel 2020. It is a national level pursuit for socially relevant and technologically innovative ideas with the potential to trigger the next big social change. IBeTo gives the right platform and mentorship to launch the most technically innovative and revolutionary ideas and to develop them into a final product.
IBeTo 2020, in collaboration with HAC, IEEE MEC SB and GirlScript Kochi will not only bring better ideas for developing a project but will also help in understanding the need for innovation in the real world. The vision of IBeTo 2020 is to make groundbreaking developments and implement it on a large scale in an area where technology is yet to make strides.
Participants will undergo an online evaluation with respect to technical aspects that supplement a project. 25 teams will be shortlisted and asked to send a detailed abstract.
25 teams shortlisted into the quarterfinals will be asked to send in their project plans and assigned mentors to whom the teams are to report to.
The teams are to submit a video presentation along with a demonstration of their working prototype in front of the judges on Day 0 of Excel 2020, which will be the final judgement of the event.
