Inspiration: One of our group members wondered why there isn't a cure for Parkinson's Disease. He then stepped back and realized that just like him, there are others who wonder about other uncured and unsolved problems. What began as an interest on Parkinson's disease, resulted as a web app that raises awareness.
What it does: Wikipedia lists the unsolved problems in the world. Unsolved math, philosophy, uncured diseases etc., Our web app aggregates all the problems.
Challenges: Styling the webpages was the most difficult part because we all have minimal experience with CSS.
Accomplishments: We learned how to setup a basic database to store values, and how to create an app on Google AppEngine.
What's next for Sci-Collab: In theory, we want our website to include a countdown to incentivize solutions to cures and other problems. Other next steps would be to market the app to other coders, so they can refine it to attract scientists.
