KURIS is a proactive society comprised of members who are enrolled in different schools at Kenyatta University hence the need to put into practice the various skills acquired in their respective schools.  This therefore formed the basis for the formation of the innovation challenge which gives a chance to the members to show case their skills through innovation in their field of study. The event took place on February 12, 2016 at BSSC rm 012 at 11a.m.
