ConnecTED is the induction briefing event organised exclusively for the freshmen of NIT Trichy. It is intended to give wholesome insights into the working of the team and the induction process that follows. The 2016 edition of connecTED was a one-of- a-kind interactive event filled with engaging, fun-filled activities, thought-provoking TED talks screening apart from the informative presentation session. The event witnessed an overwhelming turnout of attendees and the overall response was positive.
Coffee Table Talks are organised interspersed between the events to keep the momentum going. In its first edition, the students of NIT Trichy were provided with the opportunity for conversing with their director, Dr Srinivasan Sundararajan regarding his ideas in general and plans for the college. Balaji Viswanathan, acclaimed Quora celebrity engaged the audience in yet another interactive session sharing his revolutionary ideas right after the second edition of TEDxNITTrichy.
7 Billion & Her is the initiative of TEDxNITTrichy centred around the International Women's Day. We encouraged the members belonging to our local community to pay gratitude and respect to the women who changed their lives for the better. Personalised Letters of love were delivered to those who stood in for their gender in the minds of the writers. The genesis of many heart-warming stories and smiling faces, this endeavour marked the successful entry into the third edition of TEDxNITTrichy.
Novel-ties is yet another drive of TEDxNITTrichy, true to the cause of TED, which is to spread worthy ideas by creating connections. What better way to bond, than over books? When the final year students were asked to contribute, they were only eager to leave behind a legacy of their beliefs. In the form of books that changed their lives. Feast for the eyes and Food for the minds await, every bibliophile, at the event.
