SheSoft 2018-19 Championship Projects - Finalists
Stems 2 Go App – Arya Gupta
Stems are the basis of many words in English. The website that I developed helps people learn stems, by the learn and test method. This could not only help kids with schoolwork, but also new immigrants and refugees who move to English-speaking countries by improving their vocabulary. The website is built using PHP, HTML 5, CSS and Bootstrap. It creates a random set of quizzes and checks the answers. No two quizzes are the same based on the PHP random code. There are 5 levels that get progressively harder to learn and be tested. This is my first coding project.
Safe Snacks "ME Allergies" App - Madeline Blizzard and Esha Madamalla
We built an Android app called Safe Snacks to help people with food allergies know whether certain foods are safe to eat. With our app, people with allergies can scan a barcode and very easily see if the product is safe or not. The app will give you a quick yes or no to indicate if the food is safe for the specific user. Around 32 million people in the U.S. have food allergies, and 5.6 million children have food allergies. Our app will help ensure kids feel safer with the snacks they eat.
VR 3D Store App - Ashley Chon
Two of my favorite things are shopping and being lazy. I love shopping, but the fact that I must walk everywhere goes against my laziness. If I go online shopping, I can’t see what I’m buying and get frustrated when deciding to buy the product or not. My solution is to create a virtual mall. VR combines the two things in its’ name: virtual and reality. With the mall that I designed, one can feel like they are in a mall but not actually have to go anywhere. This is my solution to bringing two of my favorite things together.

In addition, 6% of the world's population or 750 million people have dyscalculia.

Did you know that over 54,449 Americans are fired in a day because they arrive to work late and/or they fail to meet deadlines? People need a platform to have alarms and reminders. I believe with more time I could have made this project more advanced by adding things like water and workout reminders. I chose this project because even though this is not a pressing issue, it’s a cause that interested me.
First Step App - Hillary Yoon, Kristine Nysmith and Madeline Magielnicki
Create website/App to support programs to raise more awareness and to help donate to organizations that are helping. By making some specifically designed for kids, it would be beneficial putting the idea of helping our environment into a young mindset. For example, we could make an Earth Scale website, but one for garbage and global warming. Users can learn about our current environment and all the factors to it, as well as learn new ways to help our ecosystem and our society. There are many global issues going on that humans tend to neglect. Global warming is a major issue that many people choose to ignore, or are unaware of. Even now, our world is changing; with ice caps melting and the sea levels rising, many landforms will soon vanish. If we do not come together to counter this problem, it will be irreversible. Together, our nation could start by using less fossil fuels. We could also implement the knowledge base for the use of electric cars and solar panels in our everyday lives to reduce our carbon footprint. Not only could this help create a sustainable environment, but create the opportunity for people to get more involved with STEM.
Global Warming & Local Solutions App - Ishani Krovvidy
I like to keep the earth for many-many more years. I thought how will I know what people do to make the earth bad. So, I made a survey, and in that survey, I asked a series of question about how they help in keeping the environment clean and safe. After that I looked at what people needed to work on, and I put this information in a website. I gave my ideas about how to help conserve the Earth and keep it beautiful. I also added a couple of pages about what global warming is and other relevant facts.
ENUTRIET App – Jamila (Mimi) Fleet
Plastic pollution is when plastic has gathered in an area and has begun to negatively impact the natural environment. Plastic is made up of toxic chemicals that can affect the well-being of humans and animals. Plastic is not biodegradable because it is meant for durability. Reusing plastic helps reduce plastic pollution. My idea is to make an app that could help companies who sell consumer-goods to offer an incentive (discount) for consumers to return their used-product packing to the company for reuse. For example, a P & G Factory was just built near my house. It may be possible to establish a recycling station there that individuals or business who collect the used plastic containers bring them back to accumulate credits. This would help P & G because one of their sustainability goals is to find efficiency in the packaging and materials process.
CO2ForYou App - Nikki Pillai, Natalie Pillai and Dia Aurora
The most prevalent cause of global warming is due to a surplus of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide is the most important gas for controlling the Earth’s temperature, as it acts as a blanket, trapping heat and warming the planet. It survives in the atmosphere for up to centuries and puts us at the greatest risk of irrevocable changes if it continues to accumulate. This is why we decided to create an app called CO2ForYou. Our app allows users to effortlessly monitor your carbon footprint by working with your GPS to track transportation-related emissions. Unlike other carbon trackers, CO2ForYou allows you to create or join mini-competitions around the world.
Stop Smoking and Drugs App - Chaiwey Chen, Valerie Song, Michelle Tan
Smoking is responsible for more than 480,000 deaths each year in the USA. We want to inform people that they shouldn’t smoke. Once addicted, it can ruin a life. Our website and game informs people about the consequences of smoking. Letting people know that smoking not only harms you but affects your environment and the people around you as well, is our priority. There are 41,000 deaths each year from secondhand smoke exposure. This is about one in five deaths annually, or 1,300 deaths everyday. We have recognized this problem and we want to make a difference.
Foodsmart App – Lilian Xiao
Foodsmart is an applet idea including gadgets that aims to help people prevent or get rid of obesity.

Foodsmart is meant to be fun and interactive, helping people fight obesity and inspire others to cope with it too. While just a design, Foodsmart is a step towards solving one of many problems in today’s world, and inspiring others to take action.
Revive App – Gayathri Aravindan, Aishwarya Thalla and Mallige Anand
Our app is designed to help people cope with loss. People grieve in different ways, so we tried to create an app that could help everyone. From our research, we found that having an outlet for grief may make it easier for someone to cope. That's why we have a section where you can write out your story and upload memorable photos. We also included drums that can help relieve stress. The final part of our app is where you can "email" the person you lost. Sometimes people wish they could have one more conversation with someone who's gone, so we tried to give you that experience through our email simulator. Coping with loss is not an easy process, and we hope that through our app, we can provide support and comfort to people dealing with grief.
Disabilities Awareness App – Shriya Kalluri, Sannidhi Korisepati and Lakshmi Sangireddi
Around the world, people with disabilities are finding it hard to communicate and learn, and aren’t accepted into society. It’s harder for them to find jobs and opportunities. Many people have stereotypes and stigma against people with learning disabilities, and this can lead to unnecessary distances in relationships that could potentially be friendships. This problem affects students with learning disabilities, parents and teachers of these students, and the public. Our solution will help kids with learning disabilities learn life skills through fun activities. It will also help others develop a deeper understanding for the challenges and problems these kids face.
