Bring awareness to environmental detriment.

Beatriz A, Emerald A, Ina E, Bridget B

Our project is a website that is raising awareness to environmental detriment, and showcases the effects of pollution on people and animals while encouraging involvement in conservational activities. Additionally, it incorporates volunteer opportunities and fun challenges to prompt greater conscience about our actions. Finally, we want to encourage girls to combine their interests with coding.

The problem is poor environmental conditions and its detrimental effects on our world.

As a solution, we created an informational website to bring awareness to poor environmental practices and encourage greater involvement amongst the population.

Using multiple programming languages and the different styles of each team member became a problem when trying to finalize the project.

Hi! My name is Bea and I am 16 years old from Merida, Venezuela. I currently live in Houston, Texas, play varsity tennis, and enjoy learning about the world around me. I am interested in the STEM field and global affairs. As a group, we were motivated to make a website with an impact and were inspired by the current movement that encourages ecologically responsible citizens. During the development of ECOde I focused on the styling and structure of the webpage.

Hi! I’m Emerald and I am a rising Senior from Austin Texas. Since the beginning of my education, I have been taught ways to ‘save our world’ either by recycling, not polluting, and being conscious of other animals that live among us. However, much of this can be forgotten or not made of importance to many. So, I hope that our website is able to provide the importance of the dangers and the effects of us not taking proper care of Earth can cause. It is our one and only home, let’s try to protect it!

Hi! I’m Bridget. I enjoyed working on ECOde because I enjoy the outdoors and want to help preserve it for future generations to enjoy as well. In any free time I have, I try to hike, walk, or swim. In this project, I helped develop the HTML for multiple tabs and CSS for the “Effects On Animals” tab.

Hi! My name is Ina and I am 17 years old. I love pole vault and rock climbing. Also, solar panels and electric cars interest me. ECOde is a project that I helped develop, and my focus was on creating a bus tracker for the public buses in Chicago in order to generate more interest in reducing pollution.

This project was made by Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program students at AT&T (Austin).
