Hear from our past participants!

” I have been a part of IEEE Eu-Reka organised by IEEE Pune section for the last two years and it has been a rewarding and enriching experience for me. As an Ambassador of Education, I had the opportunity to visit various urban and rural high schools and conduct sessions on topics such as robotics, artificial intelligence, renewable energy, and digital literacy. Eu-Reka is not just a contest, but a mission to raise the educational Reka of the nation. I am proud to be a part of this mission and I thank IEEE Pune Section for giving me this opportunity. Eu-Reka has changed my life and I hope, with the power of technology, it will change many more lives in the future! “

“Participating in Eureka ’22, organized by IEEE Pune, transformed our life. Our goal was to empower girl students through our topic ‘Technologies for rural development and women’s welfare’ in both urban and rural schools . I honed my leadership and teamwork skills during the competition, engaging with teachers and students. The students’ enthusiasm fueled our passion, leading to extended classes.
Winning as ‘Harini and team’ was truly a defining moment for us. Thanks to ALEX, AISWARYA, and RUPESH for their support.
