Stage 1:

  • Mechanical components (like parts of a clutch) will be provided.

  • The participants will be told what they have to assemble but a blue-print will not be provided.

  • The participants will have to imagine how the parts should be fixed and then assemble them using the right set of tools.

Stage 2:

  • A disassembled electronic device will be provided.( Eg. A radio).

  • Blue-print of the device will not be provided.

  • The participant will have to show his/her creativity again and figure out how to assemble it properly.

Stage 3:

  • A disassembled PC will be provided.

  • Appropriate tools for assembling will be provided.

  • How the motherboard works and how the various components are assembled. The components will consist of a motherboard( Processor may or may not be soldered in), hard disk, power system, RAM, CD Drive, thermal grease etc.

  • The contestants will have to assemble it and boot it up.


Anyone can attend the workshop

We will tell them how an operating system interacts with the motherboard and what role each component plays

  • Time will not be paused if the contestant approaches the event manager

Stage 1:10 points  Stage 2: 10 points Stage 3: 20 points


A contestant’s final score will be average of all the scores he/she obtains

All Stages:

The contestant will have to assemble the parts as fast  and as accurately as possible

The contestant who matches our time or gets lesser time than us will receive 10 points

If a contestant  exceeds the time limit then he/she will be awarded randomly based on how their work was till then

If a contestant approaches the event manager more than three times then he will be penalized ( -1 point for every time he/she approaches for help)

Time will not be paused if the contestant approaches the event manager

If the contestant damages any equipment then he/she will be penalized (-2 points for each time s/he damages)

The Organizers decision is final

For PC ASSEMBLY ,  the contestants will be given points based on:

Time( Same as above) : 10 points

How efficiently they arrange the parts inside ( 2 points) so that replacing parts in a hypothetical future is very easy

How they can dissipate the heat generated properly ( 2 points) i.e. applying thermal grease etc.

If the parts have been properly connected ( 2 points)

Finally, if the system boots up ( 4 points)

To design a model of a simple mechanism which will be specified on the spot within the time limit from the different materials provided. The materials include the necessary parts, tools and accessories essential to create the mechanism.
