VIKO students have won NASA  Space Apps Challenge


VIKO Erasmus students – Elene Tsereteli and Giga Shubitidze from Georgia and Xavier Costas Pino from Spain have won the 2nd place at Space Apps Challenge hackathon in Vilnius, 2022.

The team “CosmoGEX” composed of three students worked on the challenge “Learning Through the Looking Glass” and found the decision to create a game called YourJW designed to educate children about the James Webb Space Telescope. The game uses fun and educational challenges to give information to kids and with its interactive functions players can get information and apply the knowledge at the same time.
