Two engineering students selected for NASA’s international mobile app design competition have created an app that will easily understand even the most difficult areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics through virtual reality and augmented reality platforms.

When the NASA Mobile App Challenge was held for students to develop a mobile app that would clearly explain the operation of the satellites and the data transmitted, Dominic Walter of Anna University (AU) Regional University in Tirunelveli and Guru Prasad of the National College of Engineering, Kovilpatty won first place in the national level round of 323 teams.

Both students developed a mobile app in virtual reality and augmented reality platforms to easily understand the operation of NASA satellites and the data they receive from them. Instead of 2D images, the app provides a realistic 3D experience of satellites and NASA rockets.

In a recent online competition, the duo showcased the performance of their app, which resulted in it being selected as the best mobile app in a national level competition. Mr. Dominic and Guru Prasad have been selected for the upcoming international competition. Chief Minister MK Stalin met the winners in Chennai on Thursday to congratulate them.

Another team representing AU Regional Campus finished eighth.

After the winners met with collector Vishnu on Friday night and showed off the mobile app they had created, the collector, who is a civil servant risk analyst in the US, heaped compliments and assured them that an international tour would help them win as well.

“When we met the CM, he asked us to modify this syllabus so that students can easily understand the difficult parts. First of all, we have uploaded Class VI Science Curriculum which can be learned in 3D mode for easy understanding and retention for longer. If a student wants to know how the human heart works, he can open this app on his mobile phone to easily understand how it works,” said J. Walter and P. Prasad.

“As virtual reality and augmented reality platforms will change the teaching and learning process in the future, they will be used in schools to easily teach even the most difficult subjects and understand science, technology, engineering and mathematics,” said Mr. Vishnu.

National Informatics Center Director Arumuga Nainar and Anna University Regional Dean Shenbhaga Vinayaga Murthy were present.
