The water scarcity problem is one of the most serious risks the world is facing at every level. Although water covers 71% of the earth’s surface, only 4% is freshwater and only 0.5% of this water is suitable for human consumption. Hence, there is a need to manage the natural resources in a sustainable way.

Moonshot Jr team would share a few problem statements (already given on the page). Teams are free to select any PS that appeals to them. Teams, under the guidance of their SPOC, can come up with an idea that can help solve the problem. The idea can be explained on a 3-minute-long video/PPT where the student team will get to describe the problem they have chosen, the idea that they propose, and may show a prototype/diagram explaining their idea.
The submitted idea videos/PPT are viewed and evaluated by our expert panel and the final shortlisted teams to participate in the hackathon finale would be announced.
Winning and losing is part of the game. The overall experience derived from participating in the initiative would benefit the students in a huge manner. Besides this, all students whether their teams win or lose will be awarded Participation Certificates for Moonshot Jr Hackathon.
