About this Project:
Our app SafeSpace by students of class 701, helps people seek comfort or some sort of help. It helps people who are being bullied to never give up, and to continue on. We aim for the demographic to be fellow middle school kids, but this can be tailored for any parental age consenting students to use (ages 10 and up with parental monitoring).
We also have moderators to ensure proper use and messaging within this app as well as our above age restriction mentioned. Students will sign up and be able to see inspirational quotes and chat with fellow other students to express how they are feeling. They will also have access to help-hotlines as well and a way that we can bring attention to extreme cases of bullying to local adults within a particular school building or authorities if necessary.
App users can customize the style of their message board and chat features. Feedback can also be given to ensure we are providing the best type of app. We, The SafeSpace crew, saw this issue of bullying to be an issue everywhere across schools, and sometimes didn’t get nearly as much attention, so we decided thought enough is enough.

Feedback from the Judges:
What I think will make this app more impactful:
1) what are ways can you as a team can incorporate to protect student confidentiality?
2) how is the adult moderator user experience or view differ from the students?
Overall impactful, and incredible job team!
