The second edition of TEDxNITTrichy was held on the 6th of August at the Barn Hall after a lot of anticipation and excitement.
The underlying theme for this edition was ‘7 Billion and you’, which signified the celebration of every person’s individuality. The speakers who had come down for the conference were stalwarts in the fields of innovation, education, engineering and management.
The day started with an inspiring talk from Girish Gopalakrishnan, an educator and alumnus of NIT Trichy about ‘informal learning’. This was followed by another talk by Dr Sivakumaran, the Director of DRDO about innovation and bio-mimicry. The CEO of GreenBuild Products, Shilpa Joshi then delivered her talk on her innovation in waterless construction.
The afternoon session which followed a socio-networking lunch started off with a talk by Prasad Pillai about his work on the integration of IoT with Road Safety. Pronita Saxena followed, with a talk on her work with recyclable bio-waste in metropolitan cities. The conference ended with Balaji Viswanathan, an expert on education and entrepreneurship where he talked about his ideal education system.
The entire event was professionally handled throughout, without a hitch.
