Speaking about the Hackathon, Divya Lal said, “The ongoing pandemic has demonstrated the value of technology to our society in a far deeper way than ever before. At Fliplearn, we think it is more important than ever to foster a culture of technology-led innovation among our children. What can be more critical than the education domain for students to apply themselves and look for technology-led solutions to some of the most pressing problems and gap areas. One doesn’t need to be master’s in technology – skills like coding, designing, programming along with enthusiasms and energy and fresh perspective is all that is needed to win the competition”.
Registration for the competition is free.
