Inspiration

As high school students, we often face stress when it comes to school. To a certain extent, you could say we have anxiety. But early stages of anxiety can cause long-term mental illness. In order to prevent this, we created Positivitea.

What it does

Positivitea is a two-tiered project. Our website features quiz to diagnose whether one has anxiety and if they do, to what extent they have it (mild or severe). Our app features a repository of emergency hotlines, mental health resources, a translator, and visual aids to assist those who need it.

How we built it

We built the website using HTML/CSS and JavaScript and used our domain.com key to publish a website. As we are beginners, we used block-based coding to develop an app through Thunkable.

Challenges we ran into

This was our first time using JavaScript, so we ran into multiple technical errors. But, shoutout to Hank from MLH and Mike from Local Wisdom who helped us out!

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are proud of not only presenting our product on live television (CBS Philly), but also representing women in computer science. In addition, we are happy to know that we could use our technical skills to launch a product which will help assist people who face the daily struggle of anxiety.

What we learned

We learned how to use and implement JavaScript. We also learned some French (from the translator app!)

What's next for Positivitea

We hope to expand our umbrella and diagnose more issues such as ADHD and ADD using hardware.
