Nana Shilpa waves Lankan flag high at Microsoft Imagine Cup
The latest edition of the Microsoft Imagine Cup recently came to a close at the Microsoft Build conference 2022. Applicants from over 160 countries registered for Imagine Cup 2022, out of which 48 teams progressed to the world finals. So what’s Nana Shilpa? It’s a mobile app that’s built for screening and refining dyscalculia and dysgraphia learning disabilities among primary school students in Sri Lanka.
The Nana Shilpa app is based in Sinhala and takes into account four variants of dyscalculia and dysgraphia conditions. Learning disabilities among students have been a major concern in the education sector in many countries including Sri Lanka. Speaking about the Nana Shilpa team’s journey through Imagine Cup, Thilanka Abeywardena, Chief Marketing and Business Operations Lead at Microsoft SEA, stated that the team will be getting assistance from Microsoft to build the idea further.
After months of planning & preparation so thrilled to see this win from #SriLanka The @SLIITinfo team @NanaShilpa became one of the top 3 teams in the world at @MSFTImagine this year.
