INCOHST 2023 Interschool IoT competition organised by NCHS


Pretty much any object can be transformed into an ‘Internet of Things’ device if it is connected and thereafter controlled by the internet. The term ‘IoT’ is mostly used for devices that wouldn’t usually be generally expected to have an internet connection.


“INCHOST 2023” is an IoT (Internet of things) event organised by the Nawaloka College of Higher Studies to create awareness about IoT among Sri Lankan students and to make a stage for young innovators to invent IoT based solutions, catering different social needs. The event was held for the 4th year on the 30th of October 2023 and was bigger and better than before!
