About this event

We all know those remarkable names, brilliants of science, technology, sports and many other fields of life. Those names weren't born geniuses, they made themselves so.

We all have our functioning brains, we use them in everything, sometimes we make a good use of them and sometimes we don't, they end up being a bunch of neurons transmitting useless waves that makes not a single effort in improving ourselves, our lives, or make benefit in any way to our world.

And hence we got our "Eureka". Our own idea to help brains become more itchy, and more creative.
We tried gathering some names, some people who knew how to make use of those brain cells, they started itching every neuron, looking for something brilliant, something brand new.
They wanted to create, and ended up changing their lives and ours as well.

This event is organized to spread the idea of brain itching, digging for ideas deep in our minds, make something creative but yet simple, and help make a difference.
