I felt really happy and delighted to see the ﬁrst ever Young lnnovators’ Program coming into reality in our campus. Last year around November, when the Branding and Relations Cell pitched this idea to me, it seemed very novel that we will invite school children from all over the country and that we will inculcate in them the credo, the habit of innovation, to bring them to our campus and show them what we do and maybe encourage in them a desire to pursue a career in scientiﬁc research and engineering. We launched this in April, we wrote to about 10— 00 schools from around the country and we had about 200+ applications and after 2 rounds of eliminations 24 schools were selected for the ﬁnals which were held in the IIT Kharagpur campus. The word innovate basically means to alter something or to change something or to create.
