In an effort to provide the platform for innovative ideas by students, Excel-2013, the annual techno-managerial symposium of Government Model Engineering College (MEC), Kochi, is expanding its innovation contest - ‘Innovations for a Better Tomorrow’ (IBETO) to include high school students as well.

“A separate segment of IBETO, called ‘IBETO Junior’, aims to identify and encourage the imagination of young talents and to give wings to their ideas,” said the organisers.

IBETO Junior calls out high school students of class 8 and above across the country to send their ideas for innovations that can benefit society in some way. Ideas will be evaluated on the basis of their benefits to society and their feasibility.

The five most beneficial and feasible ideas will be given a chance to be implemented and will be provided technical assistance. The shortlisted projects will be displayed at Excel 2013, scheduled to be held at MEC in September 2013, and the best implemented project will be awarded a cash prize of `25,000.

IBETO Junior stems from the enthusiastic response of the engineering  community to IBETO. After receiving over 500 abstracts for IBETO 2013, as many as 10 have been short listed for development and implementation under the guidance of eminent scientists and technocrats. Students interested to participate in IBETO Junior can visit  www.ibeto.excelmec.org/junior or contact at 7736511542 for more details.
