About
Techkriti, since its very inception, has provided a platform for the students to showcase their talents. The results of the collective effort over the past years have been wonderful as evident by the fact that IIT Kanpur is the only institute to have made a satellite - JUGNU. It has recently developed an UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) which is going to be used for defense purposes, an ROV (Remotely Operated Underwater Vehicle), the only student made planetarium and the sole observatory in a college in the entire nation.

We hope to honor the efforts of the students of IIT Kanpur and instil these qualities and inspire students of school to do the same to develop our nation.

Our mission is to strengthen and cultivate the talent of our nation at the grassroots level, which serves our sole motive. Through a series of events involving mental aptitude, logic, and scrutiny, it seeks to provide school students a platform to build fundamental experience and knowledge, to exercise co-ordination skills, and to think out of the box while providing solutions to practical problems.
