No we’re not talking about chasing NUSTians and your friends’ names would definitely not do! Participants would be required to photograph the diverse flora and fauna found within the H-12 campus and name it correctly. Do you qualify to be called a nature lover? Register to find out…

One version of it is a toy, another version of it was a war machine – what will your version be? Participants would be required to use their creativity, scientific knowledge and (most of all) common sense to create a stone throwing device by using some basic material. The teams will have to complete this ‘machine of destruction’ in the given time; after all, war cannot wait! All those evil scientists and future weapons analysts out there register now!

Bon Voyage

Have you ever pictured yourself towing your own boat out into the deep blue sea? Many people have fancied these thoughts after watching the epic blockbuster with the likes of “The Crimson Tide” or “Das Boot” or even “Pirates of the Caribbean”. Well, if you think that you belong to that clan of people then at SYTEK’11 we provide you the opportunity to design and captain your own boat. We guarantee you that you’re going to have the ultimate maritime experience at NUST H-12 Campus. Many sailors have already set sailing. What are you waiting for? Get yourself registered!

In the sky

Ever wanted to feel what the Wright Brothers felt? We are giving you the chance to find out!

Participants would be required to design and create an actual flying machine (that would preferably be self-powered and propelled into flight by a rubber-band mechanism) in the given time-span. Any student from NUST can participate in the event since no special engineering skills are required; only common sense (let’s see how common this sense is) and a little technical hand. The teams will be judged on the performance of their ‘flying machines’. Register immediately and start practicing. The sky awaits you.

Gather up all those discarded ice-cream sticks and show us what you’ve got.

Sytek too science-y for you? Beginning to look too much like a geek-fest? Not too excited by the prospect of nail-biting competition? The Sytek team has not worked around the clock just to have you turn away in the end. For the fun-seeking and the party-loving, we bring you Carnivale – a celebration of our hardcore play-amidst-work ways. Join us as we gorge on scrumptious food, groove to hip music and release the pent-up exhaustion of the day. This is a carnival you just can NOT miss!
