The Young Ideators Festival 2023 (Science)

Overview

Welcome to the Young Ideators Festival 2023 presented by the Indian Institute of Performing Arts & co-presented by Bloombloom, where ideas are celebrated and no idea is branded as “impossible” or “too crazy”!

The Young Ideators Festival is an ideathon where we discover and recognise innovative & novel ideas of children between ages 8 and 18 in 3 major categories- Tech, Science & Creativity & Personality.

The ideathon shall be split into two age groups—8 to 13-year-olds & 14 to 18-year-olds. Candidates can either participate as an individual or as a team. They shall choose a topic based on the guiding themes. They can also associate with external mentors or professionals in the phase of creating it.

The Guiding Themes for Science are as follows -Science for social good (general) -Science for energy & environment -Science for mobility, transport & automotive
