About Open Day

Every year on 12th February, Institute celebrates its Foundation day. To commemorate this special occasion, the idea of holding an “Open Day” within the Institute premise was first floated by the Prof. R. V. Rajakumar, Director IIT Bhubaneswar on the eve of 10th Foundation Day celebration to inspire as well as to promote scientific talent among students at an early stage. Thus, Institute hosted its first ever Open Day on 12th February 2018 and envisioned to continue this tradition every year as a part of outreach activity. Continuing the tradition, the Institute is hosting its 2nd edition of Open Day this year in a grand way, by inviting students of all school and colleges of Science and Engineering within the state of Odisha. This will be an “Open for all” platform, where Institute will showcase its latest science and technology prowess to the visiting students through easy to understand, interactive sessions. Moreover, the visiting students will also gain unique perspective of science and technology by being inquisitive and voluntarily participating in the live experiments.
