Together they scripted the success story of MindSpark 2016

Mindspark is the national level, annual technical festival of College of Engineering, Pune. In its Decade Edition, this technical extravaganza comprised of over 50 events dealing with each and every branch of engineering sciences and a special non-technical section. Numerous workshops were organised pan Maharashtra and in Pune to spread the knowledge of the best and the newest innovations and creations of the technological world. With a footfall of over 18000 in three days, organising The Most Celebrated Engineering Fest of Pune required humungous effort from a highly aligned team. Meet the core team that worked hard behind the scenes to make the event a grand success !

Core Team members – The theme of MindSpark 2016 was a Green Expedition.

The core team was formed by the members of the previous year’s core committee. The selection process involved screening of candidates meticulously and rating them on a variety of parameters like involvement and dedication in previous years’ editions, work done as coordinators, confidence, ability to think on their feet, attitude towards work, ability to work under pressure and adaptability. The extended team included coordinators and volunteers who joined various portfolios based on their interests. Interviews were held for selection into the team which tested for quick thinking and creativity

The entire team was formed 4 months prior to the events. A specially dedicated office for MindSpark became the hub for all brainstorming and discussions and a place for the entire team to meet and build the event piece by piece. Division of the team into various portfolios helped in efficient management of time and resource. Each member focussed on the tasks of his or her own portfolios but at the same time played a key role in the shaping of the entire event. Regular meetings to discuss progress, problems and new ideas were held which helped in team bonding and formulations of stronger plans for a better event. The event was conducted smoothly with efficient crowd handling and proper distribution of schedules so as to guide the students across the North and South campus of the college and have a good time at MindSpark.
