“2nd Chance of Opportunity”

Creators: Diego
a High School Student from CS4ALL NYC @ Thomas A. Edison CTE High School

About this Project:

2nd Chance of Opportunity is for people who have had unfair opportunities. Whether that is because of not being in a position of wealth or they have been discriminated against. 2nd Chance Of Opportunity provides tools and resources so that they can learn about things that interest them without having to deal with their problems. The way I designed this project is that I tried to make it simple because no one would want to have to figure out a website. If my project really worked I think that it can have a wave of successful students who are actually passionate in what they are doing.

So the 2nd Chance of Opportunity is not just for people who have already sparked an interest, it's also for people who seem like they don’t have a path.

Makes Me Think

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Executive Director of Support - ACCESS at NYC Department of Education — Emoti-Con Judge
Thank you for your project Diego! I LOVE the idea of an app that helps disadvantaged people explore resources and make strategic decisions. Your idea could help a LOT of people (young and old) in our city. I hope that as you continue working on this, you can get some help from a teacher or coach to further clarify your ideas and build out the demo and presentation a bit more. Best of luck!

I think this is a very interesting project. I love the idea of a second chance. And having education available on your phone is a very noble idea.
I think the subjects you offer can be more varied, and I think you can add more categories. I also would like to know if you plan to offer this for free, or is it a paid app?

👏 Director of Instructional Design at Mouse — Emoti-Con Judge
This project has the potential to really help a lot of young people and also give people who have had more opportunities and understanding of what other people go through. I also like your commitment to making your website easy to navigate. I think that with a little bit more time and some people to collaborate with, your project could be something really special. I hope you continue to work on it and I can see 2nd Chance of Opportunity 2.0 in next year's Emoti-Con!
