About EUREKA

EUREKA is an annual District level Science Exhibition conducted by CURRENTS, NIT TRICHY for the schools of Tiruchirappalli district. The event centers around a wide range of topics under Science and Technology to build the participants to put forth their innovative ideas for going closer to a better future. Here at EUREKA, we set a platform for the thought provoking youngsters to come out and shine forth with their exhibitions over a stage of honour.

Our esteemed judges for the final round consists of scientists from research institutes and universities.
