The event saw a good response from different colleges across the city. Speaking to The Beacon, MrTaral Shah, Assistant Professor, co-ordinator said, “It all happened because of the student’s interest, I just supported them and since we are conducting the event after so many years we have about nine colleges both from PG and UG department who showed up and we are overwhelmed by the response with the hope to continue the same in coming years.”
Talking about the events he added, “We have a new event specially for the UG students called the Mathematical Relay, where the runner unlike the game which involves running, solves the math problem and the result of it will lead to the next question.” A series of six events each for UG and PG department were conducted separately.
