Throughout history, women have made extraordinary contributions to their societies. Some are well known, some less so, but all have been trailblazers. Explore a small selection of these women and learn what the reality still is today for many women and girls worldwide.

As of 2021, a significant content gender gap on Wikipedia still exists, where fewer than one in five biographies is about women and even fewer article contributors self-identified as female.

That's how we came up with W-aple Story! A fun way to celebrate women in stem one story at a time. Because there are so many achievements that need to be showcased.

What it does

W*-apleStory is an interactive timeline of Women* Footprints throughout history, where you're able to add a woman to your network who created an impact or meet some women* in the past.

How we built it

  • NodeJS
  • React
  • MTLH Canvas
  • Maplestory API
  • Heroku/
  • Figma

Challenges we ran into

  • Only two people working so we had to work efficiently and have a limited feature scope
  • Never used HTML Canvas before and images weren’t loading properly :(

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  • Worked with the API (It's really cool!)
  • Learned about all the amazing work women have done throughout the years
  • Developed both a high High-Fidelity prototype and turn it into a working website
  • We deployed an application using Heroku!!

What we learned
