Light up your brain and bring out the imaginative and creative skills that is hidden in you, to build up a 3D model. Geo-modelling provides you a platform to represent surface/subsurface geological processes occurring in the earth system in the form of 3 D model . So gear up your skills and get ready to play with your innovative ideas!
Problem Statement:- Participating team need to present a working model. Model can
depict a geological / geophysical / petroleum setting or phenomenon.
Participants can also present a 3D design of model on any software.
"You know more than you think you know, just as you know less than you want to know.” Geo-spectrum is a Quiz competition which will test the participant’s quizzing aptitude on a broad spectrum of subjects of Earth Science. It is a team event. Though the major emphasis will be on exploration, it will touch many other facets of Geo – Sciences in a very interesting format. It will be conducted in two rounds. The first round will be a written test consisting of multiple choice questions. Top scoring teams in round one will proceed to next stage comprising of oral questions including audio and visual rounds.
Why do I love thee, O Night?
Because you know I will never answer.
Cannot fathom what to do with your wandering brain during the night?
Grid-nite offers you a challenging as well as a fun experience to keep yourself occupied. It's an over night event where participants will be given the grid the evening before and the answers will be collected the following morning. It involves creativity as well as presence of mind.
Participants will be provided with a grid which will carry words related to Earth Sciences. They have to solve the grid and find as many words as they can. Sounds easy, doesn't it?
Here's a twist - The competition isn't about finding the maximum number of words from the grid, it's about creating as many geologically meaningful sentences using these keywords.

"The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek." Have the zeal to hunt the things in field of Earth Science that make you different and unique. Prithvi’18 presents a platform for our budding geoscientist who seeks there future in field of Exploration. The task involves using geophysical prospecting methods to locate objects whose expected properties are known. Design of the survey and its execution is the challenge. Equipment will be provided.
The identification of Rocks and minerals are key attributes of a good earth scientist. But this event requires to have a much broader perspective of hand specimens. Therefore Palaeontology has been clubbed with Mineralogy to give MINREX. Hand specimen identification involves immaculate eyes, thorough knowledge and mind of a hawk. It is not easy to instantly recognise every rock type and mineral, instead proper identification is achieved by a systematic querying of its properties. It’s It’s time to churn up your gray cell as prithvi-18 brings you a platform that would test your geological skills to the brink and push your mind to the edge of its capacity. So, if you think mineral and fossil identification is your fortitude, then it’s time for your Knowledge under the sword of MINREX.
Is quizzing your forte? If yes, Prithvi brings you a platform to check on your Earth science knowledge. Also it is handy to those aspiring for competitive examinations. So before appearing for the next competitive exam or class test, measure your aptitude with our Online Quiz designed exclusively for you.

Scientific Paper Presentation, The Platform for presenting research
Making Posters is the best way to convey information about a topic. Prithvi provides you a platform to present your research. Poster Presentation will require submission of poster on recently published papers or on-going research /projects in the field of Geoscience.
For Poster presentation, you can choose ANY topic related to Geoscience.
In the past, we had submissions from participants on varied topics ranging from unconventional hydrocarbons, plate tectonics, structural, stratigraphical and geo-chemical modelling to seismic analysis, near surface geophysics etc. Note that above topics are for giving example only. You are free to choose any topic but it should have direct or indirect relationship with Geosciences.
Terra wars is a battle to be fought on Google Earth grounds. The side with the
brightest minds of geologists shall survive and win the combat. So come and test
your Mathematical skills applied in Geological fields and experience the epic
results. The question paper will contain 2 sets: one containing multiple choice
questions on structural geology and other set of questions will be solved using
google earth platform. The time limit of the event is 1 hour.

An interest in geology and a will to speak , this is all it needs. For all the wordsmiths out there, this event is just for you. Participants will be given topics related to geology on which they will have to write an article. After this the shortlisted participants will be given another topic during PRITHVI’18 and one day time to prepare a speech. Final judgement will be made on 3 factors: content, understanding of the topic and elocution.
