Now college grads, the former computer science majors won first place in mobile game design in Microsoft’s worldwide Imagine Cup competition, according to a Drexel press release.

Math Dash is an mobile game that helps elementary students learn math.

The worldwide competition was held in Sydney, Australia and the trio, composed of Matt Lesnak, Keith Ayers, and N. Taylor Mullen, beat out finalists from France and Hungary. The team won $8,000 and $10,000 for Drexel.
