Often, students studying in Pakistani madrassas are thought only to possess Islamic knowledge. They usually fall behind their mainstream counterparts in regards to conventional education, especially STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).

A team of students from Jamia Bait-ul-Salam, Talagang, has reformulated these stereotypes by qualifying for the final round of Turkey’s biggest tech competition, TEKNOFEST.

The Madrassa team named Blatu made it to the finals and topped their category of Technology for Humanity-Social Innovation, securing 87 out of the 100 points.

The TEKNOFEST Aerospace and Technology Festival is organized every year by the Turkish Ministry of Industry and Technology and The Technology Team Foundation (T3) to promote and encourage innovation in the country.

Tech teams from all over the world participate in the competition and represent their countries while competing to win over 3 million worth of awards. The event includes competitions like the Robotaxi Full Scale Autonomous Vehicle Competition, Flying Car Design Competition, and World Drone Cup.

The competition caters to all age groups from primary school teams to university graduates. The finals of this year’s event will be held in Istanbul from September the 22nd to the 27th.

Students from Jamia Bait-ul-Salam have previously shown their intellectual skills in previous national competitions. In 2019, a team from the madrassa won the Robofiesta robotics competition held at the HITEC University Taxila.
