You can make a difference with one small change.

E-Saver is an environmental website to raise awareness of climate change. We were able to accomplish this by having many tiny features, such as a timer, graph, and map. We also wanted to personalize the page so, we added a sign in page (username: Lauren , password: password) and program to store the timer data.

People have been using overusing earth's resources for a long time. Most of the time, we don't realize how much we use so we often waste resources as well. Nowadays this is a huge issue that needs to be brought to our attention. Climate Change is real. Even though Trump denies it and weaken environmental policies, it has drastic consequences. So small changes like taking shorter showers and taking hikes can reduce our carbon footprint and preserve our world for future generations to enjoy.

E-Saver aims to help give solutions to solve global warming, like shower timers, a survey, and google maps markers that give locations of farmers' markets and recycling centers.

We planned a graph that syncs up to the shower timer. We used Chart.js, an external javascript library, to do this. There were numerous hurdles from making the graph show up in the first place to solving graph skipping (the data points skip numbers, so it would go 1 3 5 7 instead of 1 2 3 4). Eventually through asking for help and seeking inspiration we solved those issues.
We also had issues on adding buttons to filter markers inside our map. The google maps api was tough to work with because concepts like scopes and functions didn't allow us to do so. In the end, I was able to figure it out!

We are E-Saver, a group of Juniors and Seniors from the Bay Area. Before the GWC Summer Immersion Program, we knew nothing about computer science. We learned multiple languages throughout the 7 weeks and tried to implement everything we’ve learned into our final project. For this project, we wanted to focus on sustainability and living an eco-friendly lifestyle. We all felt really passionate about this topic because we’ve seen the effects of global warming within our community.
