The convention under the “Innovate, Create, Impact” theme featured over 250 innovative projects that exemplified the spirit of Change making and problem-solving.

The JBCN Innovators’ Convention 2023-24 provided a platform for learners to exhibit their inventive projects, emphasising originality, clarity, feasibility, impact, and sustainability. From solutions for space agriculture to addressing overflowing dustbins and creating affordable air purifiers, the projects showcased diverse, innovative ideas that impact society and the environment positively.

The event was graced by the esteemed Chief Guest, Dr Supratik Chakraborty, a Stanford graduate and currently holds the position of Bajaj Group Chair Professor in Computer Science and Engineering at IIT Bombay.

“While witnessing the outstanding projects by the learners, I was truly impressed by their ability to work independently and engage effectively with inquiries. It is crucial for educational institutions to cultivate a culture that encourages curiosity and critical thinking, guiding learners to question and explore rather than simply accepting information at face value”, said Dr. Supratik Chakraborty, Bajaj Group Chair Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at IIT Bombay
