‘Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.’
The self‐assured and gratified human species tends to forget that some of the
most complex problems are solved by nature in the simplest conceivable
methods. Hurdles in the creation and design of technologies can be overcome by
observing the species around us, by learning from their natural implementations.
This event tests the participant’s ability to observe from the ecosystem we
live in, and apply that inspiration in the technology they aim to produce.
Cash prizes worth 30,000 INR to be won.!!!

• Nature has been used to inspire many engineering innovations, from the simple
Velcro straps that we use to the winglets on the Airbus A380.
• We require students to come up with an inspiration from nature that is feasible,
energy efficient and can be implemented in the real world in order to make our
• The students are to work on their idea, analyze its pro's and con's, generate
approximate statistics (like energy consumed per hour, pollutants released per
hour.etc when it is implemented on a specified scale) and prepare a
report/presentation based on their work.
