The Winners of Make School’s Student App Competition 2017!

We had over 600 students register and submit 136 apps, games, and mobile experiences to the Student App Competition 2017. Our judges had their work cut out for them, as there were many amazing products!

Grand Prize

The Grand Prize winners are Akshaya Dinesh, Amulya B, and Sowmya Patapati who built reVIVE, an ADHD diagnostic and treatment mechanism using VR.

Diagnosis ADHD is complicated and time-consuming — it can take up to 6–9 months and thousands of dollars. In addition, ADHD diagnosis is based on a variety of subjective factors and there is no definitive, quantifiable way to diagnose it. The judges of the competition are inspired by this VR solution as a diagnostic and treatment mechanism for ADHD. As well, they are impressed with the creativity, technical difficulty and UX of the product.
