Innovation in technology is taking the world by its stride. Innovation is definitely the fuelling force that can strengthen the economy of a country. Government of India also encourages innovation by its various initiatives. But sadly, young generation does not get enough opportunities to utilise their creative and innovative spirit. ‘Aloysius Tech Fest’ is an initiative of St Aloysius Industrial Training Institute which tries to plug this hole in the education system. The purpose of this initiative is to provide an opportunity to the students of the institution to get creative and innovative in the technical field. It is also aimed at kindling the spirit of innovation among the youth in general.
The initiative has been very successful and students have prepared innovative technical models by their research, creativity and innovation. For the benefit of the public, ‘Aloysius Tech Fest-2022’, a technical models exhibition has been organized on March 4 and 5 at St Aloysius Industrial Training Institute. The innovative technical models would be at display in the exhibition. “Our aim is to foster the innovative spirit among youth”, says Roshan D’Souza, principal of the institution. The exhibition is open for the public. Director of the institution Fr John D’Suza has requested students, youth, parents and general public to make use of this opportunity. “India has the highest youth population in the world. If our youth develop innovative spirit in their respective fields, it would add fuel to the growth of our nation”, he says.
