Skyfi Innovation Clubs are student-led clubs in Colleges that help member students to learn and build innovative engineering projects. They act as a platform for members to develop and showcase their skills. These clubs utilize the leadership qualities of student managers along with the technology resources of Skyfi Labs to spread innovation in Engineering Students within their campus.
Since the clubs are being operational for the first time, we will only accept limited applications from colleges for this season. More clubs would be added starting Nov.
All Skyfi Innovation Clubs run throughout the year and follow a specific schedule as given below. The Student Leaders of each club coordinate and help students in their college follow the schedule.
The activities of the club are divided into the following:
Skyfi Innovation Clubs can be started by students with good leadership skills and a passion to improve innovation in their community.
Step 1: Selection of Leadership Team: A team of 3 students (who enter 3rd year in June/ July) is selected from each college to run the club. The applicants will be interviewed and selected students would be permitted to start the clubs in their colleges.
Following posts would be selected:
The above 3 will be selected after interviews from Skyfi Labs. These 3 can further select a team of upto 5 members (from 1st & 2nd year) to help them run the club.
Apply by 31 March. Results will be announced by 15 April.
Step 2: Enrolling Club Members: The leadership team will undertake steps to enroll interested students in the college as members.
Step 1: Selection of Base Project - Members should select a base project (Max of 5 members/team) on which they will further innovate in next stage. The base project provides the foundation where students learn and build the project under expert guidance. Technical concepts, Kits and Support to build the base project is provided through Skyfi Labs Online project Based Courses. Deadline for students to pick their base projects and register is May 15.
Step 2: Start building projects using Skyfi Labs Online Project Based Courses - Student Members will recieve the kits depending on the base project they chose to do within 10 days. Students in this stage will follow the Learn-Do-Review Methodology of Skyfi Labs courses to learn and build the base projects. Student members are expected to start working by June 1.
Step 3: Complete the project & Submit video assignment - Student Members should complete their base projects using Skyfi Labs Online Courses and submit the final assignment including a demo of their project by July 31.
Students who complete stage 1 within the deadline are allowed to enter stage 2. In this stage, students innovate to extend their base project into a more advanced project. Students can use additional concepts and components in this stage as needed. Deadline to submit the final project is Oct 31.
The innovative engineering projects submitted in Stage 2 would undergo a round of selection through public vote and the shortlisted students would be invited to demo their projects live in Bangalore. Students get an opportunity to present their projects in the presence of industry experts from some of the best technology companies and use it as a great platform to showcase their innovative engineering skills. Prize money of Rs. 25,000/- will be awarded to the final winner selected by a panel consisting of industry experts.
Student Leaders (managers and asst managers) selected by interviews run the club in their college. Their role includes coordinating with the student members, providing them the necessary technical and other help needed by them to follow the schedule. The Student Leaders coordinate with Skyfi Labs team, provide inputs and feedback from student members and play a very active role in streamlining the entire program. All Student Leaders would get high quality Leadership and Technical Training from Skyfi Labs free of cost and would be invited to the final demo. Each year, at the end of the season, all student leaders would get certificates and best performing leaders get awards and recognition for their work in improving innovation among their peers. Best Leaders would be selected based on the number & quality of innovative projects done by the members of their clubs in various stages and their ability to run the club smoothly.Applications Closed
