We are driven by a strong passion to close the opportunity gap in access and affordability to higher education opportunities for all students, especially those who are first-generation, low-income, underserved, and underrepresented.
What it does
How we built it
We created the survey with a web page and form using WordPress and Contact Form 7. After the data is collected from students, it is downloaded from the database as a csv file and analyzed in R, resulting in valuable insights on how to improve the education system to better serve minority groups.
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
We learned how to decide on which data to collect, how to collect it (as well as clean and format it), and how to best analyze it to solve a problem.
What's next for The Next (First) Gen
In the future, as more surveys are completed and more data is collected, we can make stronger insights about minority educational opportunities (ex: compare between locations or between schools). We plan to create interactive charts, graphs, figures, maps, and other visualizations for users to better understand the data we've collected.
