"The fest saw over 15,000 walk-ins with students taking part in diverse events," said Anurag Bura, technical secretary of MindSpark 2010. Conducted on the CoEP campus, the most popular events were robotics, treasure hunt and contraptions, he added. One of the most enthralling sections of the festival was the technical championship, which drew together the five top performing colleges participating in MindSpark. "This is done by awarding points for participating and winning in events. The top five colleges -- Government College of Engineering (GCOE), Amravati; Government Engineering College, Aurangabad; Vishwakarma Institute of Technology, Pune; Maharashtra Institute of Technology (MIT), Pune and All India Shri Shivaji Memorial Society (AISSMS) College of Engineering, Pune, were asked to assemble their teams.
Following this was the actual championship round where the colleges competed against each other in different tasks to earn the coveted title of 'Technical Champion'," said Bura.
The MIT team proved victorious and emerged as the 'Technical Champion' 2010. The largest number of participants were from GCOE (Amravati) and they walked away with the title of the 'Most Enthusiastic College'.
The event ended with a performance by CoEP's cultural team. There were songs, dances and creations of sand art. Later, prizes were handed out to winners of all the 38 events that took place at MindSpark.
