What Are We?
Technothlon is an international school championship organized by the student fraternity of IIT Guwahati. Technothlon began in 2004 in a small room with an aim to “Inspire Young Minds”. Starting on our journey with a participation of 200 students confined to the city of Guwahati, over the past 12 years we have expanded our reach to over 300 cities all over India and various centers abroad. The championship is organized over 2 rounds:
- Prelims:a written preliminary examination which takes place in numerous schools all over India in the month of July
- Mains:an event based competition which is conducted at IIT Guwahati, among the top 100 students from each squad.
Students participate in teams of 2.
There are two squads:
Junior Squad – Students of classes 9th and 10th
Hauts Squad – Students of classes 11th and 12th
The members can belong to the same class or as well as different class. For example: a team consisting of one member from class IX and one of class X is perfectly acceptable for Junior squad. The basic requirements for team formation are they should consist exactly two members from the same squad and the same institution.
The championship is held in two stages:
Prelims (To be held in July ……….. )
Mains (To be held at IIT Guwahati )
