“Mythical Chair App”
About this Project:
We brainstormed ideas on how we could solve this problem. Many of our friends suggested bean bag chairs. We really liked that idea of everyone sitting in comfortable chairs in class. When someone said that they didn’t like bean bag chairs, we realized that we need different chairs for different people. We also liked the idea of a delivery service that will bring us a chair and exchange it when we don’t like it. We built our app around that idea and added more information as we worked on it.
Our app works with a login page. We need to make sure that their chair gets delivered to the right school. Then students will have the chance to select different options for their chair, such as, “massage chair, soft chair or stiff chair.” The filters will lead them to a page to view the different options. They can read the reviews and see if the chairs are available. To buy the chair, the students can use points that are given to them by the teacher. The teacher will give points to the student as a reward when they do anything well, like homework or classwork. Once the student buys the chair, someone will deliver the chair to the classroom and the student can use it. If they don’t like it, then the student can go back to the app and exchange it to receive their points back.

Thank you so much for sharing such a fun project with us! Your work put a smile on my face. I love that you're thinking about a problem that directly impacts your classmates and finding a unique solution. Prioritizing health and accessibility at school, at work, and in society as a whole is so important, and I'm excited to see what initiatives you'll think of next! I agree with some of the other comments here that it'd be cool to see this built out to accommodate additional ability levels.
