Club Connect is a web application that works to help high schoolers find clubs in their school easily and stress-free. Our simple interface makes it easy to access all the information one would need to feel comfortable attending a first meeting.
As we are entering our 3rd and 4th years of high school, we have noticed how hard it is to find and connect with clubs at our schools. We have found that some school websites have a list of clubs and possibly teacher contacts, but there is no easy way to find other information about the student leaders, meetings, events, etc. This makes it more difficult to find a community at school where you feel like you belong.
With Club Connect, high school students can easily find the different clubs available at their school and the important information regarding those clubs in one website. This way there is less struggle and anxiety in trying to join groups and make friends at school.
We had some difficulty working with Django and PythonAnywhere, as well as figuring out how best to dynamically display data. However, it all worked out in the end after some Google-ing and outside help. Special thanks to our instructor Kayla and TAs Jorden and Mira for dealing with all our questions and bugs!
