e-Yantra urges our young polytechnic /science/ engineering students across the country to find innovative solutions for addressing the challenges of COVID-19 and its spread.

It's time to find creative solutions to help fight #Coronavirus.

e-Yantra has touched thousands of lives over 10+ years through robotics training and It is only natural that when the country is faced with the enormous challenge of COVID-19 knocking at our doors that we turn to our young innovators to help devise a response to the challenges of COVID-19.

For these reasons and more, we have launched a hackathon for our young engineers to help us find innovative solutions to identify ways to prevent the incidence of COVID-19. We need all sorts of solutions to help our people cope. Authorities are dealing with many problems but we’re certain you’re already acquainted with many of them - some are outlined here. We believe you can think of many more…

Our hackathon thus aims to:
