Kerala Innovation Week was India’s largest Design, Technology, and Maker fest held at Kerala Technology Innovation Zone, Kochi from 22-28 May 2022. A project by Kerala Startup Mission in association with Global Shapers Kochi (an initiative of the World Economic Forum) to build a collaborative Innovation Ecosystem in the state of Kerala.
St.Teresa’s College being an official event partner at Kerala Innovation Week, planned and conducted various creative and ingenious competitions and cultural events including a flash mob on the last day of innovation week 28th May 2022. The student volunteers from IIC (Institution’s Innovation Council) and IEDC ( Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Centre) and TIBIC (Teresian Innovation and Business Incubation Centre ) conducted competitions such as a Treasure hunt, Marketing Competition, Face Painting, and a Debate at the respective venues assigned. Each competition was planned and conducted by the respective student teams with much keenness and effort. There were food stalls set up by our Student entrepreneurs to showcase and sell snacks and delicacies on which they brought an innovative twist and creatively presented it before the buyers.
We concluded the event with a fashion show set up by the Fashion Team of the Fashion Designing and Technology Department of our college which gained much praise and admiration from the viewers. The innovative concept of stitched sarees with traditional drapes was brought out in the first round and the second round of the show comprised a showcase of dresses made of reused clothes. All the competitions and cultural programs had the participation of students from various institutions across the state. Thus, the participation of our college at Kerala Innovation Week 2022 by Kerala Startup Mission proved to be a stepping stone toward igniting the students with a mission of Innovation and a near Technology-driven future.
