  1. Dear Student,

    This is with regard to TECHFEST, the annual technological festival of
    the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay, India, one of the world's
    premier engineering institutes.

    From its inception in 1998 to being the largest of its kind in entire
    Asia in 2003, Techfest has come a long way. In its seventh avatar, Techfest
    2004 extends its horizons to reach out to students not only from India
    but also across the world. The fest is scheduled for 24-26 Jan, 2004.

    CLIFFHANGER, the International Rope-climbing Machine Design Contest,
    aims at providing novel solutions to the problems faced by the rescue
    workers who often have the daunting task of climbing tall buildings at the cost
    of endangering their own lives. In this competition, you have to design a
    machine that climbs a rope of given dimensions and burst the balloons
    kept on the top of a structure.

    There shall be a qualifying round where in you are required to submit a
    video of your machine. AIRFARE will be provided to a few select entries
    from outside India in the qualifying round. Prizes worth a whopping US
    $2500 are there to be won including -

    1st Prize : US $ 1000
    2nd Prize : US $ 750
    3rd Prize : US $ 500
