A wise man once said, "God has never created something useless so if you think something is, then you are probably looking at it the wrong way."

The word Kaleidoscope was made out of two greek words, "kallos" which means beautiful and "eidos" which means shape added to those is the english word forming element "scope" which means something for viewing.

The Kaleidoscope is an optical instrument containing loose bits of colored materials (such as glass and beads) between two flat plates and two plane mirrors and there's an eyehole in the other end.

What you see when you look through that eyehole will never be the same twice, a huge variety of patterns and colours that will be changed as long as you're changing the angle of the fallen light so when you rotate your kaleidoscope it will show you a different pattern every time.

So through our event this year "Kaleidoscope" we aim to give you a bunch of different subjects and talks every talk has it's own and unique pattern and our role is to help you improve your vision because maybe you need to move and look at your life through different angle so you can see beautiful things, just like the kaleidoscope does "different components with different angles can change the view for the useless things you may think you have and gives beautiful patterns".
