NaSCon ‘19 opens on high note

Islamabad

April 13, 2019

Islamabad : The three-day National Solutions Convention 2019 (NaSCon '19), the flagship event of FAST-NU’s annual social calendar, opened here on Friday.

The opening ceremony started off with the recitation from the Holy Quran.

The videos of the countdown excellently composed by the marketing team of NaSCon '19 were shown.

The president of NaSCon '19 congratulated the whole team of the event for their hard work. The director of FAST praised the team efforts.

The alumni founding body of NaSCon '19 shared their experiences and mentioned how the competition was a really good opportunity for the younger generation. Noted educator Master Ayub narrated his journey of teaching the poor children in Islamabad's F-6 sector free of charge, especially during difficult times.

He said he took the initiative thinking if he didn't educate poor children, then they would become robbers, beggars, and even terrorists.

The educator said his students had the chance of becoming doctors, engineers, teachers, and government employees.

The guests were taken outside the auditorium, where a PAF musical band put up a spectacular show to make the opening a memorable event.

The organisers said the NaSCon '19 was a student-run mega event, which had provided the best technological and industrial set of opportunities to youths over the years.

They said the NaSCon welcomed an average of 7,000 participants annually representing the countrywide educational institutions.

"For the last two decades, NaSCon has enriched the awareness amongst students and professionals alike, providing a forum for the exchange of ideas, an environment for the showcase of exceptional professional skill and a platform for innovation," said a member of the organising team.

He said the NaSCon was primarily dedicated to bringing together and combining the mental prowess of students from all over the country, and putting it to good use. "Apart from students, people from different organisations also attend the event and contribute to providing solutions for a sustainable future of Pakistan," he said.

He said the event had 50 different competitions, which were divided into five categories, including electrical engineering, computer science, business, social and sports.
