Inspiring Innovation Mindset in Generation Next!



Persistent Systems and i4C together with MHRD and AICTE have been pioneer organizers of the popular nationwide Smart India Hackathon initiative for the last 3 years. Through this initiative, they have been tapping the creative potential and honing technical skillsets of engineering students across India to solve the Nation’s problems.  In keeping our commitment to encouraging ingenious ideas, we are extremely proud to announce that Persistent Systems, i4C and Persistent Foundation are launching the first ever Smart School Hackathon (SSH), a special innovation competition aimed at tapping creativity of school students.

Smart School Hackathon 2020 provides the students a launch pad to explore and develop their technical competency and surge ahead in their future careers. SSH 2020 aims to help students get a platform to showcase their creative expression, enhance their cognitive skills, inculcate out-of-the box thinking and boost their confidence.  Students of Class 7, 8 and 9 from 23 schools in Pune, PCMC area and Nashik will participate in SSH 2020 (Maharashtra Edition).  Each school can enroll any number of teams each comprising 3 to 4 participants in SSH 2020.
Currently we have received over 100+ ideas for 5 problem statements touching upon critical topics like water conservation, waste management, cleanliness, noise pollution control, etc.  At the grand event, students will walk away with attractive prizes for Best Innovative Idea, Best Team and many more.
