Conceptualized at a never before scale Cryptics hosted by Vydehi School of Excellence is poised to be the Karnataka’s biggest Interschool Computer Quiz Competition for students of Grade 8 -10.
The first edition of this mega event is all set to convene the best minds of Karnataka’s leading schools from three major cities (Mysuru, Mangaluru, Bengaluru).
Mr. Harjeet Kakkar, visionary leader and entrepreneur is the brain behind Cryptics. Founder and promoter of various successful IT startups, he is the CEO of Vydehi School of excellence. His vision to integrate cutting edge Information technology into the school curriculum led to the conceptualizing of Cryptics, a platform where students come together, learn, compete and prepare themselves to face the challenges of the future. Cryptics, currently a Karnataka state level competition is envisioned to be a pan India event by the year 2020-21
Vydehi School of Excellence founded by the late Dr. D. K. Audikesavulu Naidu, with the aim to provide holistic education at par with international standards. The motto of our school “ Knowledge is Supreme Power” caters our vision of lighting a lamp of knowledge that illuminates the world with its wisdom, while creating a knowledge pool that will never dry.
Cryptics, an Information Technology Challenge is an endeavour from Vydehi School of Excellence which is being piloted this year involving schools across major cities in Karnataka. With the ever-changing technological scenario, the next decade will see IT affecting almost all aspects of our lives. With skills getting redundant every couple of years, the need to generate awareness and fascination for computers, in students becomes much more profound.
The Quiz is designed to hone the intrinsic and latent abilities in pupils and demonstrate their talents while competing with peers in schools across the state. Our aim is to develop this platform and provide students with an environment that constantly challenges them to learn more and kindle the spirit of healthy competition amongst the impressionable young minds.
