We were all shown how important mental health is when we are alone during Covid-19 and we realized that astronauts face isolation for long periods of time as well. We decided to help ease their time in space by helping them maintain good mental health.
What it does
The main purpose and idea of the app is to maintain the mental health and overall well-being of these astronauts that are in space. It has a clickable button that takes you to screens for each part of the app which is described in our presentation.
How we built it
Using Thunkable we were able to make our app. We have used Google Slides to essentially get our ideas and thoughts out there.
Challenges we ran into
Some challenges that we faced were coming up with a way to fix the problem and making sure that it was feasible and applicable. We had to make sure that our solutions were reachable and that they were no large flaws in the plan.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Building our app while being creative and innovative with our ideas
What we learned
We learned how to build an innovative app, and we also learned just how much mental health can emotionally and physically affect an astronaut's wellbeing.
What's next for Mental Health In Space
Making our app even better and learning to develop our virtual reality forest walk!
