From August 6th to 9th, EduSTEM held their Computer Science x Entrepreneurship Girls Camp, the newest addition to their STEMX series. 30 middle school girls coded apps, learning business development skills, and pitched their technological solutions to family and friends on the last day. The girls used MIT AppInventor to develop their mobile applications. The six teams' applications were:
PrizeRun - A mobile application that teams up with local businesses to reward users with certificates and coupons for exercising by tracking steps with a pedometer function.
MusicMash - An application for singers and amateur musicians to mash together custom-made and pre-recorded sounds and voices to create their own songs and remixes.
Scoop - A dog-walking application that allows customers to find local dog walkers, set up walks, and track their dog's journey to ensure their safety.
Trivia4All - A trivia game that merges educational content with entertaining questions to engage users in a fun, competitive environment.
BusinessParent - An entrepreneur-based social network for upcoming entrepreneurs to share ideas, develop partners, find mentors, garner attention from the business community and ask for advice.
SwimTime - An application catered towards swimmers that alerts them and informs them about event timings, pre-meet schedules, and recommendations.
We are so impressed by these young ladies' ideas and already cannot wait for CxE 2019. Thank you to the AI4ALL community grant (won by AI4ALL alum, Archika Dogra) for the financial support. Thank you to Lake Washington Institute of Technology for the amazing venue! Lastly, thank you to Microsoft, Uber, AI4ALL and LWIT for the incredible swag for the girls.
