Joule is the scientific unit of energy. It is also the name of K. C. College’s B4 department’s cherished biennial fest which will take place this year on the 12th, 13th and 14th of August. Every year, the students of the BAF, BBI, BFM and BMS departments of K.C. college try to do something completely original to raise the standard of college fests across the country, and Joule 4.0 – The APP’ocalypse is the in attempt to not only raise the bar but destroy it. A reflection of our country’s changing times and inspired by its future, The APP’ocalypse is a well coined pun referring to our country’s initiation into the technological age of applications.
This is because Joule 4.0 is digital. Right from registering into the competition and checking for scores which will be done through their self-coded and self-designed Joule application (available on PlayStore for android), to each of its events where apps will not only be highlighted but literally used to navigate through and win events, Joule will be a three-day celebration of the technological age with participation from over 25 top Mumbai colleges.
A fest with a cause, Joule 4.0 started its countdown to the main three days of its festival with a college-wide 7-day donation drive. Students of the B4 department collected 50 boxes of various fundamental items like toothpaste, blankets, toiletries etc which they then donated to a total of 10 NGOs reinforcing and emphasising the importance of having morals and compassion in endlessly changing times.
One energising Sunday was spent by all the participating colleges battling it out in K.C’s one of a kind pre event-The Human Foosball where the legendary arcade game was brought to life by replacing little plastic men with live players to kick the ball into the goal to earn points. The very deserving winners of a fierce battle that ensued were Jai Hind College who took home with them a bagful of PR points that will give them an advantage on the main three days.
On Saturday 5th August, with only 7 days to go to the fest, Joule 4.0 held its flash mob- The War of the Apps in their college campus, on Marine Drive and the famous Infinity Mall in Malad where all our favourite applications battled it out in song and dance to win the title of Joule’s favourite application. Facebook seemed a little miffed with Instagram afterwards but well.. that’s what happens when it is time for the APP’ocalypse.
K.C. college is updating to the 4th generation on the 12th, 13th and 14th of August. The APP’ocalypse is here. The world is changing. The question is are you changing with it?
