Ayush has recently won the ‘Google Code to Learn’ contest and emerged as the winner in the competition across India.

Ayush participated in the All-India Coding Contest conducted by Google for schoolchildren across India. Lakhs of students across the age group participated in this contest, where Ayush participated in Class V category. He created a game in the scratch platform titled “Space Ninja Warrior”. This game is based on the Maths theme. He will soon receive chrome book from Google and a certificate for the same.

Besides, Ayush won MIT App of the month in January this year for creating an app Lingo Land. This is an app which he created along with his friend Jashith Narang. The app is available in Play Store for download. One can learn Sanskrit and Spanish in a fun way with the help of this app. He now plans to include French and Marathi languages and the school curriculum and launch the app for his classmates with his school’s help.

Ayush said, “I like to experiment with game and app design. I was thrilled to win the Google code to learn and am looking forward to getting the chrome book from google. I will create more games and apps on that!!

Ayush is a talented student and has created several mobile educational applications during lockdown! Keeping in mind his inclination to coding, we have always supported him to nurture his love for it and provided him the necessary encouragement to enter and excel in all competitions.”
