Undergrads' networking platform wins top prize in sustainability contest

SMU students Jennifer Poernomo, Michelle Leong and Jeannette Lee and NTU student Ng Yan Qing found it difficult to make friends in online classes after they kicked off their first semester in university amid the Covid-19 pandemic, and are developing a learning platform to connect students virtually. The platform connects students to study groups and matches tutors to students. It also has a question-and-answer forum and provides study materials. Their proposal won them the grand prize at the second annual Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) Sustainathon Singapore on Wednesday (Jan 12). The competition seeks to inspire young innovators to solve sustainability challenges through technology.
