Junior Make-a-Thon (JMT) for School Students

Junior Make-a-Thon (JMT) is a one-of-a-kind event launched under Tech and Innovation Fair that promotes maker spirit among school students by encouraging them to build unique and innovative solutions for existing problems.

Students undergo dedicated mentorship sessions and workshops which help them to convert their idea into a working prototype/model.

The competition will be categorized into two:

JUNIORS:Grade 6 to 8
SENIORS:Grade 9 & 10

The purpose of JMT is to introduce maker culture to school students and encourage them to come up with innovative solutions to various problems. JMT motivates students to combine their practical thinking skills with the theoretical knowledge they gain from school to solve real-life problems. It also introduces entrepreneurship to these students thus creating the future entrepreneurs of the country.
