About Eduthon

The pandemic has created several problems in the lives of everyone and we all have been fighting in our own ways and moving forward. We believe that despite all these problems, learning should not stop hence we have devised Eduthon- An Education Based Hackathon.

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, your safety and well-being are our primary concerns. Hence, all the activities related to Eduthon like workshops, talks, and presentations will also be conducted online/virtually.

Eduthon has been brought into existence to give those designing, building, and maintaining a built environment the opportunity to collaborate with cutting edge technologies and its developers and designers to hack for a better education.

Why Eduthon?

India saw a nation-wide lockdown in March following the covid pandemic. The pandemic has left a massive impact on students and many of them don't have access to proper education at this time. Colleges, schools, tuition and coaching centers are facing a lot of issues they were not prepared for, such as conduction of classes, evaluations etc. These problems are not just affecting the academics but now they are a problem for the young minds. Many students are now suffering from mental health issues and the cases of suicides within students are increasing. To tackle these issues that we face or see around us on a daily basis we have chosen education to be the theme of our hackathon.

Why is Eduthon for you or why should you participate in it?

Eduthon is an Virtual Hackathon, which means it provides you the opportunity to participate directly from your Home, no fuss of going here and there.

Ample Goodies and Swags for every participant.

Prizes worth 50,000 INR.

You will learn how to work remotely and handle multiple things. Perhaps, a golden opportunity to connect with like-minded participants.
