Congratulations to our SP-SMIT team, JonShonRonVon, for being the Champion (Software Design category) in the Singapore League of Imagine Cup 2007.
Imagine Cup is a world-wide premier student competition by Microsoft. There are various categories and the Software Design category is the most prestigious and challenging one in the Imagine Cup competition.
The students had to compete with teams from universities, other polytechnics and ITE through a number of presentations. The final round of presentation was judged by a panel of judges comprising of CEOs, Managing Directors and Venture Capitalists.
This year's theme for the Imagine Cup is "Imagine a world where technology enables a better education for all." and the students conceptualised and developed a prototype for a system called Bolesis (The Borderless Learning System) where credible learning resources can be made available to learners. The learners are also provided learning aids such as dictionaries, encyclopedias, collaboration tools, translation services etc to make learning effective and efficient.
The team that made up JonShonRonVon are:
- Jonathan Cherian Samraj
- Ko Shang En Shawn
- Ng Shi Qi
- Ooi Teck Chau
The team will be competing with other Champions from around the world in Seoul in August and we wish them all the best !
