Tessellate started in 2018, when the student body of a small research institute tessellated seemingly unrelated cultural and academic events in a seamless manner. The fugues of Music theory and Mathematics that segued into captivating carnatic concerts. Sacrificed knights and fifa fights that preceeded pro-nights. Major’s questions and trading suggestions that accompanied multiple mentoring sessions.
In deviation from the pomp and glitter of other college festivals, Tessellate presents to you three days of pure scientific and artistic fun, passion and excitement.
