We saw that very little students interact with finance, even though it is what they will experience day-to-day in their adult lives
What it does
An online course maker similar to Khan Academy, except for finance. Teach students through videos, and let them take quizzes for money. Money can be used to invest in our own fake stock market.
How we built it
MVC-based web app on ASP.NET Core (.NET) with SQLite Database
Challenges we ran into
Including a WebGL game to simulate someone’s financial life, since we obviously didn’t have time. Focusing on styling was difficult because there were so many features to implement. The ACT also made half of my team unavailable during the hackathon.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Google login. Video upload and search
What we learned
We need better communication. Especially for when someone leaves because of a standardized test.
What's next for Deviate Learning
If we had more time, we would have implemented money, then the stock market. Then the game, using three.js
