As high school students, we are always looking for volunteer opportunities and as the coming generation, we are also passionate about the climate especially our oceans. We wanted to make a website & app that allowed high schoolers to get volunteer hours while helping the climate with their friends at beach cleanings.
What it does
Our project provides information on plastic in the ocean and it allows people to connect with each other, schedule beach cleanings, attend other beach cleanings, etc. This is an opportunity for the youths to gain teamwork, leadership, etc.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We had trouble animating the social media buttons, designing the header (Home page), making the buttons on the app, etc.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of the app because it was the first time we made an app and we learned Swift in just a week to make this app. We are also proud of the website because we added so many new elements that we self-learned by ourselves.
What we learned
We learned how to make an iOS app, animate social media buttons, adding a header, and the overall styling.
What's next for Sea Plastic
We hope to provide more organizational stuff(like Slack/notion/taskcade), such as a platform where they can form groups and work on projects (similar to how a non-profit organization works).
