In totality, 178 teams registered for the event, showcasing their technical abilities and mechanical intellect to solve real world problems. This event amassed the most number of participants ever, making it the largest event organized by the Mechanical Engineering Society of IIT Delhi.
The event proved to be an informative as well as an entertaining one, especially amidst all the chaos caused by the pandemic. The participants really put in their utmost efforts, be it extensive researches related to the problem or the innovations embedded in their solutions. After an intense competition among the contesting teams, 6 of them were shortlisted for the final round, in which the selected teams had to virtually present their solution, and justify them as well. Each one of the teams proved their mettle until the very end, making it an even tougher task for the judges.
Finally, after due deliberation and discussion, Team Pesu-Blr, from PES University of Bengaluru, emerged as the winner, with Team Bolt heads occupying the second place and the third position was secured by NilMechs, a team from IIT Delhi itself.
