A group of 14 students — 10 of them from Gurgaon and four from Delhi — has developed four useful mobile applications this summer vacation.
The students, screened through a rigorous test on mobile application ideas and logical ability, attended a four-week ‘Mining Future Prodigies’ (MFP) programme conducted by city-based multinational IT firm Hughes Systique Corporation (HSC).
At the end of the programme that spanned over May 28-June 28, the young prodigies came up with four applications, namely, Go Sappy — an application to manage human’s mood by displaying one’s achievements when the person is in a bad mood; Edustudular — a study application that enables users to manage their time table and act as a ready reckoner for formulae; Right On Q — an application that helps users install, update and uninstall other android applications from Google Play Store based on his or her need and Text Andris — an SMS application that enables the user to schedule the SMS based on pre-provisioned user defined rules.
The students, who were supported by IT experts, are studying at various schools in classes ranging from 9 to 12. Taran Chanana (16), a Class 10 student of DPS, Sector 45 who participated in the programme, said having a prior knowledge of Java that is part of the classroom curriculum helped while working for the MFP project.
“We came across some brilliant facets of technical qualities in our prodigies. MFP training will help them improve their portfolio and open up many opportunities in terms of good professional colleges,” said Shilpa Mahna Bhatnagar, head of mobile terminal division at HSC. Last year, students came up with an android application on news reading. The NewsWala application is available at the Google Play Store.
