Silver for Cheat Sheet and Platinum for Oceans of Adventures
NTK was awarded with the Silver Seal of e-Excellence for its Cheat Sheet software. Cheat Sheet is a mobile phone application helping students prepare for tests and exams and initiating self-studying. It’s the first piece of NTK’s new mobile phone software family, which focuses on tests and exams mainly in K9-K12.

NTK was awarded with the highest Award, the Platinum Award, for Oceans of Adventures (Tengernyi Kaland). Oceans of Adventures is an alternative reality game (ARG). It is a series of online activities in the framework of an exciting and entertaining story, during which children acquire knowledge following their own curiosity.
