    Like every year, the club organized a “clothes collection drive” in the month of August in which they collected the old and unused clothes from the faculty and staff quarters. Once, the clothes were filtered and segregated, they were donated to Shanti Bhawan, an old-age home. The club also set up a few performances to keep the residents entertained.

    SPAWN conducts classes on Data structure, competitive coding, and programming languages for the students of our institute. They also established a “Hardware Museum” under the guidance of their faculty advisor Prof. Pankaj Kumar Sa, which was inaugurated by our former director Prof. Sunil Kumar Sarangi, in the year 2016. The museum is not yet open to the public. The club is planning on organizing an exhibition, where they will showcase computer hardware that they use every day, starting from the old models used in the 1990s to the high-end ones used now. They also organized classes on C, C++, MATLAB and Data structure with Bhubaneswar based computer training organizations like Lakshya and LIT this year.

    SPAWN was given a budget of INR 30,000 this year. Though this is a fairly good budget for any coding club, they hope that the budget goes up to at least INR 40,000 next year, considering their work in the hardware museum. They plan on investing the money in buying more hardware for the museum. This year, they faced problems in settling bills and getting money in time.

    Technical club -

    Catering to the need of keeping up with rapid development in technology in recent times, and in inspiring those around to discover their passion for the same, Microsoft Campus Club has lived up to the status of being one of the pioneers as a technical club of NIT Rourkela. Founded on the first of August, 2005, it has come a long way from being a localised organisation to one with nationally recognised events, while establishing similar clubs in other engineering colleges in Rourkela.

    Quiz Club -

    The Quizzing fraternity is indeed a unique arena, where despite existing prejudices intelligence is not the only deciding criterion. One such club that strives to make a place for itself in the national circuit is Inquizzitive.

    Inquizzitive was established in the year 2009 by a bunch of students who were passionate about quizzing and wanted everyone to recognize it’s importance. It was formally registered as a part of the Literary and Cultural Society, and the club faced many hurdles during its establishment. There was a shortage of funds, the club members were not properly aware of the various quizzing competitions of national level and there was a general lack of exposure in the national quizzing circuit. Although there was no special allotment of a budget for events during fests, their annual budget is amounted to INR 35,000 out of which INR 33,000 was used for the conduction of Qurios and the remaining INR 2,000 for Jnanagni.

    Social Club -

    In a technical institute like ours, there are hidden talents amongst everyone. Some are writers, some artists, some singers and almost everyone a foodie! Katkam Srinivas, who is the founder of Srinivasa Lunch Room (SLR), along with M. N. Anandbabu as their mentor, established chef’s club three years ago. The club has come a long way and has had its shares of difficulties. Team MM tried to find out what happens when chefs get together when we caught up with Radha Krishna, the Vice President of the club.

    Initially, when the club was founded, around 90 people had come for the orientations and inductions. After the process, 40 members were inducted into the club and have maintained 30 members as their baseline, ever since. The club started making its name from the Multi-Ethnic Fest in 2013; in which it set up a food stall and provided cuisines related to the zone which was performing that day. The delicacies on the foreign zone helped the club reach new heights as the member named Abdul Hadi Sharifi, had everyone licking their fingertips with the diversity in the food prepared. After that, the club set up food stalls in NU for the same academic year, and the trend continued in the coming years.
