HCL Jigsaw assesses school students in grades 6 to 9 on key 21st Century skills, including research, critical thinking, and communication and helps them apply these to solve real-world challenges.
Interested students or schools can register at www.hcljigsaw.com, by July 31, 2022 to participate in the competition.
The total prize purse for HCL Jigsaw 3.0 is Rs 12 lakh and winners and finalists will also get a learning opportunity at HCL Engineering and Innovation labs.
Commenting on the initiative, Sundar Mahalingam, president of strategy at HCL Corporation said, “nurturing critical-thinking skills is essential to help young minds thrive in a rapidly evolving world and teachers and schools play an important role in this journey. HCL Jigsaw is designed to expose students to situations that require them to exercise their problem-solving and critical thinking capabilities. Jigsaw 3.0 will present real-world case studies and encourage the participants to come up with innovative solutions to win exciting rewards.”
