Eduthon is the collaboration of programmers, designers and inventor to code, design and build innovative solutions that tackle real world problems caused in education sector due to corona pandemic.
Its a weekend of geeking at its finest for improving the industries that affect all that live or work in a house or building.It has quickly become a global community of innovators that include all elements of the build environment.
This year marks the 1st edition of Eduthon,IIIT Lucknow. The Hackathon shall take place from 4 to 6 September,2020 Virtually.
The first edition of Eduthon promises to be the grandest, greatest and the most magnificent beginning that a fest could possible have.
Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten. India came under the wave of corona pandemic in march followed by a lockdown. Everyone was talking about how this will impact the industries, jobs etc. but an important topic like education skipped everyone's minds.
Colleges, Schools, Tutions and Coaching centres have been stuck with issues they were not prepared for , multiple issues are being faced , conduction of classes , evaluation etc.
To tackle the innumerous issues that cross our minds on a daily basis we have chosen education to be the theme of the hackathon.

The team size can range from 2 to 4 members.
The Eduthon hackathon will begin on 4th September 3:00 pm and the projects must be submitted by 6 Sept 9:00 pm.
Beginners, pros, literally everyone. Anyone with a passion for learning, or primarily, undergraduate and highschool programmers are welcome to attend. Even if you can’t code, we can teach you or you can help out in the hackathon.
Possibly something that resonates with the theme of the event, that is social good. It can be a website, software, an applet or maybe even a piece of hardware. We’d love to see anything that solves a social problem or goes with our agenda.
No. In the interest of fairness, students should not be working on their projects before Eduthon begins and we do not allow participants to work on pre-existing projects. However, you can familiarize yourself with all the tools and technologies you intend to use beforehand.
No, there is no such provision. Selection of a team is done considering all it's members. However the team members can apply as individuals and then form a team after selection.
Unfinished or unimpressive (so you think) projects should be presented anyway! Presenting your hack gives you a chance to be proud of what you’ve done, and a constructive perspective of where you should be headed next.
That is not a problem! A great way to learn how to code is by attending a hackathon. It's an event for like-minded people to share what they are interested in and teach each-other what they are passionate about, whether its coding, electronics or anything else you want to know about. You never know what new skill you might pick up! You can also ask specific questions to our mentors and in the Discord server, where people are there to help. Plus we have planned numerous workshops and talks for you guys to make the learning process better.
