It’s a common scenario in colleges that a science or engineering student steps back when it

comes to working on a project or research work. Working in a team is where they lose interest as

the task becomes tiring, exhausting and cumbersome. It’s high time that we adopt new ways to

work on our projects. Here is where our platform PiBlitz shines bright.
