STAMP makes communication between students easier by connecting them through a common social media platform for them to ask questions and meet others in their classes. This strengthens the academic community by helping students create stronger bonds between each other and their teachers. An easy and accessible platform- STAMP network addresses all of the issues that face students across the country today.

As students ourselves, we understand how it feels to be confused, or even disconnected from the material being outlined in a course. Even though there are a plethora of online resources available for us to access, it would be nice to have a direct network or academic support system within your academic community.

We created a social networking platform called STAMP that is geared towards students and teachers within each interscholastic community. STAMP facilitates communication between people all around the school for a more engaging and interactive academic experience for everyone.

We had significant difficulties working with Django, a framework that would allow users to create accounts and store posts in a back-end database. Even though we didn't end up using Django, we were able to work around these problems and create a static site that models what STAMP network is capable of.

We are a group of five girls who have come together through Girls Who Code. Coming from completely different backgrounds, we have spent the past seven weeks coding together and not only learning concrete computational skills, but also valuable lessons through our shared experiences in the program.
