I have always been passionate about chemistry, and really enjoy learning as much as I can. I recently learned how to read the NFPA 704 "fire diamonds", but I realized that the numbers were actually quite useless to chemists, having been meant for firefighters. If I saw a sign I wanted to identify the chemical of, it was very inefficient to have to open up Google and type in the search terms. Even then, the searching was difficult, as NFPA 704 is usually represented in images, causing the text search to be even more inefficient. I came up with the idea to search from a database. However, due to my limited knowledge on code, I had to use AppInventor 2 in order to construct my app. The feature that I'm most proud of is the automatic search, in which a Wikipedia page with the chemical in question is automatically loaded after the chemical is identified.
