"The D Labs" Wins national Microsoft Contest

This news is just a re-iteration that Biharis are intelligent, can do better and be the best given a chance and therefore I wanted to share it with everyone.

Microsoft is conducting a worldwide student competition called "Microsoft Imagine Cup 2012" for which a national level competition was conducted. About 50,000 students from across India participated in this competition and 4 students from Bihar , christened  "The D Labs" won this competition. The four students are Devesh, Kumar, Amit Kumar Sharma and Abhishek Kumar from BIT, Mesra (Patna campus) and Deepali Sinha from NIFT, Patna. The winners were announced by Kevin Turner, COO of Microsoft in New Delhi.

The worldwide finals will be conducted in Sydney in July 2012.

The D Labs team has developed a software to enhance the learning abilities of school students suffering from dyslexia. The device records minute details about a child's activities and then creates solutions suited to the needs of the student, and orients games and exercises to address those needs.

I think its a well deserved win, as not only it is innovative but also focuses on an area that would help lots of people who will benefit from it.

More details can be found in the Times of India article "Patna students win national round of Microsoft contest"
