The day was packed with games, i.e. Foosball, Fifa 2011, NFS Hot Pursuit 5, not to forget the ice cream scoop-up eating competition. 

Shreyans Bodhankar, a first year student of the Department of Engineering said, "The event 'BEAT THE HEAT' had a very interesting concept to it and these are indeed ways to cool off this summer. The competitions were indeed crowd pullers." 

With so much of fun, for a while the heat was beat! Watch out for next year's Spectrum!
