Presenting Ideas: Shot Your Thought
Mitesh Mishra | Mar 17, 2016
Established two months ago, The Society of Food Engineers, NIT Rourkela Chapter organised its maiden event “Shot Your Thought” in the International Students Meet 2016. The challenge for the participants was to present a topic allotted to them using visual aids like a poster. A total of 11 groups participated in groups of two spanning for over two hours. All the groups were allotted specified topics like Food Waste Management, Food Quality Control, Food Entrepreneurship and provided with chart papers, crayons and other stationary items using which they had to make a poster within an hour. The last half an hour was allotted for the presentation of the idea in front of the jury. The participants were judged on the basis of their creativity and speaking skills.
After a nerve wracking contest, the team of Mrinal Suman and Sambit Mahapatra won the competition while the team of Sidhant Swarup and Pratyush Behera bagged the runners up position. All the participants were later on felicitated with certificates
The organisers were pretty much satisfied with the participation. Speaking on the overall conduct of the event, Co-ordinator, Ashish said that, “Our main aim was to make people aware about the various opportunities in the area of food engineering.” The club plans to organise more such events and also organise talks by young entrepreneurs to make people aware about the career aspects in the field and also help in establishing the roots of the club.
