School is stressful for everyone. Cramming is the norm. Students are suffering from mental health due to large amounts of homework, tests, and extracurriculars that they have to balance. That's why we created Charity Study to combine the pain of student life with social change.
What it does
Charity Study will help you autogenerate your study schedule, so that you do not need to cram the night before. You will gain points for studying diligently. If you gain enough points, we will donate money to charity.
If you maintain a 7 day streak, extra points will be rewarded. If you enable no distraction (blocks instagram and other apps), extra points will be rewarded as well. Placing top 10 on leaderboard will also earn you more points Unlocking achievements = points
In our app, there is a to-do list, that tracks what projects that you have due. Instead of a regular to do list, we have progress bars which allows for flexibility.
We also have a activity page that allows you to track the amount of time you spent studying. A leaderboard is also available to give students motivation as they look at other people who study hard. The streak feature encourages people to keep using our app, as the higher the streak, the more rewards we will give
In our app, we can also block other applications, such as Youtube to avoid distractions. Here you can also combine your google calendar so you dont have to waste time adding events, and everything is in one place
You can also add friends in the app, so that you can have friendly competition.
Our app also has a calendar feature that allows you to see what work you need to do in the future.
In the future, we hope to add a group study feature Similarly, on the leaderboard, groups that place high on the leaderboard get more study points We also hope that we can add a study resources page to this app, so that students can study smart and not ineffectively.
How I built it
We built it using Figma, and used the team feature so we could all collaborate in real time.
Challenges I ran into
Our group has very fundamental coding knowledge and we struggled to code it. Infact, some of us didn't even know how to code at all. At the start, we created all our frames as different sizes and when we began presenting, we realized how bad the issue was because some of the frames were half the size of the screen.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We finally have a good looking prototype, that actually works. We weren't expecting much as this our first hackathon for all of us, and barely knew how to code. Nevertheless, we pulled through and successfully made an app!
What I learned
We learnt how to do group workmore efficiently. We also learnt how to use Figma with a higher degree of effectiveness
