Students of BIT assemble a robot on the second day of Pantheon 2017, the three-day technical fest of which t2 of The Telegraph is an associate, on their Mesra campus near Ranchi on Saturday and (below) Dr Abhas Mitra, former theoretical astrophysics head of Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC), Mumbai, delivers a lecture at GD Birla Auditorium. Students had a brush with the world of robots which they were asked to create and race in a competition called Droid Trooper, which was one of the many mind-boggling challenges that kept geeks busy. Earlier in the day, students got the opportunity to interact with astrophysicist Mitra after his one-hour lecture on "Black Holes, Gravitational Waves, Big Bang and Dark Energy".
