Generations 2013: National level Biomedical TechFest @ IIT Bombay

Department of Biosciences and Bioengineering, IIT Bombay with its students council Symbiotek is hosting its annual technical event
GeneRations2013 on 16th and 17th February 2013. The theme this time is ReGenerations, Life Bounces Back.

GeneRations 2013 is a national level inter-collegiate competition aiming to provide a platform for exploring innovative and creative ideas. It encourages students towards a great career in the field of BioSciences and BioEngineering.

The event consists of various events including Quiz, Robiotics, InoVista, Tresure Hunt and many more, followed by Technical Symposium on day 2.


Exocytosis is the phenomena by virtue of which the cells eject out the unwanted, waste and harmful particles from the cell into the extracellular medium. The cells however, do not throw out the substances that are useful for the cell. The aim of this competition is to use robotics to mimic this mechanism.

There will be four different colored balls in the arena; some white and black balls. The robots must choose the coloured balls and put them in their respective color coded pockets. The black and white balls however, must stay in the arena. Dropping of these balls in the pockets will result in a penalty.

The bot that scores the maximum points within the stipulated time wins!!
