This year's theme is "Reversi!", which was selected from open call.
The theme has the following thinking in mind:
"Reversi" is a board game for two played on a board with black and white disks. Players take turns placing disks on the board with the goal of bracketing their opponent's disks between their own. If successful, the bracketed disks are then turned over to show that they are now possessed by the player that has bracketed them. The winner is the player with the most disks on the board when all of the disks have been played. The exciting part of this game is that the player that is losing near the end of the game can reverse their fortune with a lucky move. After having been canceled for two years in a row because of typhoon and COVID-19, we're hoping that this year's Tokyo Tech Festival (2021) will turn the tables and be the winner.
We are planning a wide variety of online events. Read on to see what's being scheduled.
We're going to livestream a wide variety of events on YouTube, including music and dance performances by student groups.
It will be livestreamed on YouTube on Saturday, October 30. The winner will be announced on Sunday, October 31. This year’s contest will be an exciting time for all.
This online event will feature individual pages on the Tokyo Tech Festival website highlighting the exciting work being done by participating groups. It's open to everyone, and it's sure to be of special interest to prospective students and the public.
