About this Project:

This app provides tools so that adolescents can: Express their emotions and feelings. Decide freely and responsibly when to start sexual relations and with whom. Avoid unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections. Each young person should have the experience of leading healthy and safe relationships, of knowing how to set and repeat limits.


Our application is not just about sex, it is much more than that, it is letting young people know that having a different sexual orientation than the one we are used to is not bad and that in case of any doubt they can have a place to go and find the information they need. need or who to talk to.

Feedback from the Judges:

You tackled an extremely important issue! It's so important to arm teens with matter-of-fact information about sex, and since sometimes people are embarrassed to ask, an app is a great private way to do that. I also appreciate your use of statistics to back up your argument. It's pretty shocking to see how high teen pregnancy rates are in the U.S. compared to other countries. Maybe your app could help change that!

This is such an important issue you are exploring! I love how cohesive and full of data your pitch is. It gives the audience an in-depth understanding of why we need an app like this. My one suggestion for your project would be connecting users with in-person clinics or physicians for testing or free protection methods. Overall, I think this app could be really useful-- especially if it is used in conjunction with sex education curriculum in schools (or promoted between peers). Congrats on a great project!

As a queer person in tech, reading through this project gave me the warm and fuzzies. I'm so impressed by how many different important aspects of identity and acceptance around gender and sexuality your team considered in this process. I wish I had this app growing up! The focus on consent is wonderful to see, too. You didn't need the data to convince me this is a worthwhile product, but your presentation is even stronger with all the data you present on why something like this is necessary.
To make the app even more inclusive, when you talk about menstruation, you could use gender-inclusive language like 'people who menstruate' as opposed to 'girls'. Beyond that, it's clear you did your research for this project. I'd love to see the impact this could make, especially since you all considered how to connect users with professional resources. Great work!

It's so lovely to see such an inclusive and educational project! I'm very impressed seeing you all work on something so necessary for the youth. Your focus on inclusive Sexual Education at your finger tips is very intuitive and can be a very influential form of education for so many! I would love to see more of the Apps layout and what other things the app may offer, such as encyclopedia of terms, locations for health services or even communication tips to talk to partners or family about various topics. Great focus on why this is so important to make!
