Connection makes your high school experience the best it can be!

Tiffany C, Aditi P, Raeka L

Our app, Connection, allows students to see when and where school activities are. By incorporating maps and events, Connection effectively organizes events in a single place for students’ convenience.

In high school, free time becomes more and more scarce. It becomes difficult to keep track of and attend school activities like club meetings, rallies, school concerts etc. School activities are important because they make the high school experience better.

Our app displays a Google Maps satellite view of your school and includes event markers of the event’s location. When you click on the marker, it expands, showing you the time of the event and a short description of it.

Our biggest challenge was creating a responsive website. In high school, we don't see students walking around in hallways with laptops trying to access school events, so we decided to focus on the mobile format. The app is now accessible just in the palm of your hand.

"This app is so useful that it would benefit students in high school and beyond, like even in universities"
