A statewide programme, Hackathon, gives students a venue to find solutions to some of the difficulties they encounter on a daily basis, fostering a culture of product creation and a problem-solving mindset.

The first SIH was organised in 2017. The innovation cell of the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) organises SIH once a year to give students the opportunity to develop solutions to issues posed by businesses, non-governmental organisations, and government agencies. For more than 15,000 students, the Ministry of Education is organising the SIH software and hardware edition this year. In an effort to foster an innovative culture and a problem-solving mindset among schoolchildren, the MoE has also launched the Smart India Hackathon - Junior.
