Greetings from Team Shaastra, IIT Madras!
Shaastra is the annual technical festival of IIT Madras. It holds the honour of being the biggest student-run annual fest in Asia with an ISO 9001:2015 certification. The Shaastra team embarks upon an excursion each year, to ensure that what started off as a technical fest, evolves to include a myriad of domains of Science and Technology.
This year Shaastra is back again with the second edition of Shaastra Juniors, a completely online three-day technical festival especially aimed at spreading technical awareness among school students. A fun-filled weekend of October packed with events, shows, lectures, and workshops is sure to have each and every student yearning for more.
Shaastra Juniors will be conducted online so that students can participate from the comfort of their homes.
