CHENNAI: Infinite Engineers is an initiative by a team of engineers dedicated to educating budding scientists at the school level. “Our primary goal is to create young creators. We wanted to give children the freedom, exposure and practical knowledge to build fundamental skills. To make this happen, we have introduced a tournament called HOST (hands-on-skills tournament). It is a tournament for school children (Grade 5 to 8) that aims at nurturing essential transferable skills through practical and interactive challenges and activities,” says Harish Srinivasan, co-founder of Infinite Engineers.
Initially called hands-on science tournament, the first edition was held in 2019. The second edition will be organised in November. This initiative is designed to help children become what they wanted to be in the future. “Generally, in science exhibitions, children come prepared with a project and exhibit it. But, in this tournament, our educators and designers come up with unique on-the-spot challenges to extract the best out of the students,” he adds.
