Technothlon 2019 - International School Championship by IIT Guwahati


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 14 years we have expanded our reach to over 400 cities all over India and various centers abroad.

Technolthlon Rounds

The championship is organized over 2 rounds:
1. Prelims: a written preliminary examination which takes place in numerous schools all over India in the month of July
2. Mains: an event based competition which is conducted at IIT Guwahati, among the top 100 students from each squad.

Eligibility for Technotholon

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.

Technothlon Levels

The championship is held in two stages:

Technothlon Prelims

To be held on 14th July 2019

Prelims is in general an objective written exam. It involves no syllabus or general knowledge and relies solely on the student's logical and analytical thinking abilities. The exam is generally of 2 and ½ hour length. The question paper will have various sections like maths, puzzles, code crunchers etc. Each section has its own marking scheme.
The two team members are given a common Question paper and answer sheet and they can discuss it amongst themselves and attempt the paper together.
These questions are designed in a way to properly check the intellect and problem solving abilities of the participants. This also involves development of proper teamwork amongst the participants thus leading to wholesome development of students.

Technothlon Mains

To be held at IIT Guwahati during Techniche 2019

Mains is an event based competition. It is conducted during "Techniche", the Techno-Management Festival of IIT Guwahati, held during the first week of September. The selected teams of the same squad compete against each other in various events. Each team will have to face 3 events from which top 5 teams from each squad will be selected for the Final Showdown. The events, like prelims, do not require any prerequisite knowledge and students will be taught any extra knowledge they require. The events vary every year and in the past there have been events like Robotics, Aircrash Investigation, Water Rocket and many more!
