It was raining competitions on day two of Technologic.
First up was the Inter-College Poster Presentation. This competition was open to undergraduate students in the fields of IT, Management and Engineering, to give them an opportunity to showcase their creative, research and presentation skills when it comes to Information Technology in-relation to Information Technology Management, Wireless Technology, E-Business, Web Technology and Data Mining. Here too, the winners and runners up were the two teams from BSc. ISM.
Next competition was the Inter-School Graphics and Multimedia Competition. There were two sub-categories: ‘Expressions’ and ‘AniMagic’. Both sub-categories were open to students studying in the 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grade.
‘Expressions’ tested the ability of students in designing expressions and ideas using photo editing software’s. ‘AniMagic’ tested the animation skills of students while making a movie using Adobe Flash. Arab Unity emerged the winners in ‘Expressions’, while Indian High School Dubai was the runner up. On the other hand, Indian High School took the winner’s trophy for ‘AniMagic’, while Arab Unity was the runner up.
The Inter-School Technical Quiz took place next, with both trophies being bagged by Indian High School Dubai. The Prize Distribution ceremony followed the Quiz, but the fun didn’t end there.
Post-lunch was the Promoting Green IT ’09 Walk, which was intended to spread awareness on how technology is promoting conservation of the environment. Students and professors alike, wearing bright green t-shirts participated in the Walk.
Preceding the Walk was the Inter-College competition where students had to create an innovative banner with the best slogan depicting Green IT. Here too, BSc. Biotech took home both the trophies. The Walk was a short one, which started off from the Manipal University block, on to the Food Court, and back around Heriot Watt University on the way to the Manipal University block.
While Technologic ’09 drew to an end by 1 PM, Mrs. Sophia Rahaman, a Professor in the Department of Information and Technology, said "On the whole it was definitely a successful event. As I had mentioned in my welcome address, we are proud to see our vision mature into a broader spectrum, where we are now organizing an inter-collegiate event, which I am sure will nurture young minds. So we are happy that it was a successful event, and expect a much higher and dynamic response for Technologic ’10."
The Department of Information and Technology deserves a pat on the back for organizing a successful and fun-filled two-day event. With the response that Technologic ’09 has received, there is no doubt that Technologic ’10 will be even bigger and even more fun.
