What problem is your app solving?
Our app is called, ‘Voices’ it aims to solve the problem of student not feeling comfortable to address their concerns and opinions on schools issues.
How does your app solve that problem?
This app will solve this problem between students and staff because we hope they would be more likely to share their thoughts and concerns on school worthy news/issues through this app that will allow them to share it with everyone, with the option of being anonymous.
How will you use your app development skills in the future?
I would use my app development skills in the future to create more apps that aims to help the community.
Why is this problem personally important to you?
This problem is personally important to me because I don’t often tell my teachers my problems because I often felt like it wouldn’t solve anything so I usually keep it to myself. If my app existed it would allow me to be more open and honest, and see if others students or staff felt the same way on a particular issue, in hopes to create a solution.
How will your app development skills help you in your classes at school?
I believe my app developing skills will allow me to improve in all my classes.Tags: CIKidIncubator, event, hackathon, incubator, WHScienceFair
