The idea behind this event was to bring out the skills of turning waste material into something productive and creative and all this while thinking on your feet. The steams were provided with inventory right out of the junkyard and they had to generate an idea of a product and had to make it using the waste materials. They were brimming with ideas and showed superlative skills in their products. The event was full of excitement and intensity where all the teams displayed great character and enthusiasm.

All the teams pitched great products which reflected the thinking skills, creativity, execution of ideas and overall presentation. The teams in Junk to Jewels who had an edge over the others were awarded on the basis of the jury’s decision

The event was a great success as it gave life to the idea-generating culture.
