On the second day of Graph-E-Thon organised in Graphic Era Deemed University, young scientists from 16 states have been working hard to create new sustainable tech solutions. Coming from various places across the country, more than 80 teams will be working non-stop for 72 hours to transform these innovative ideas into reality. Even after 24 hours, the teams are working on making sustainable and useful prototypes. The prototypes include solutions to problems like mental and physical health, education of underprivileged children, economic growth and many more.
