About this Project:
Our students found a problem they deal with and have to solve throughout the school year. What do we wear when the weather changes? How do we know what is appropriate to wear in the different seasons? So, our idea for an App to help us solve that is Weather Wear! Weather Wear is an app that tells you the weather for the day and will then tell you some options of clothes you can wear based on the weather and temperature!

Feedback from the Judges:
I'm a trained UX Designer in multiple disciplines (visual, interaction, research, strategy) who can deliver production-quality front-end code. I love to work on web-based or native mobile applications that users use to get something done...and delight them while doing it! I'm a systems thinker and empathizer with a knack for translating business needs into user-friendly interfaces. I'm an explorer and a Toys R Us kid, constantly learning about myself and the world I live in.
The simplicity also appeals to me. Weather wear isn't trying to multi-task. You all delivered a perfect solution for a single need. If I had a dollar for every time my sons asked me what to wear I would be able to retire tomorrow, lol.
One feature I think that would be neat would be the ability for the user to add their clothes to the app, either by photograph or typing in a name. Then the app could show the user exactly which shirt or jacket to wear. :)
Great job overall, I am so glad I was chosen to judge your amazing app!
Perri has always maintained an interest in experiential learning and credits her high school experience at a progressive boarding school for this. She believes deeply in empowering youth and educators and is excited to be working with the Mouse team toward these goals.
Kate is the Director of Instructional Design in the Boot Camps division of online education provider, 2U. She oversees the development of intensive short courses that teach adults in-demand technology skills. She's worked at the intersection of media, tech and education for over 15 years and obsesses over the ways those things influence our culture--and how we can harness them for good! Before working at 2U, Kate was lucky enough to geek out on this stuff with fellow nerds at Mouse, the San Francisco Film Society and the Jacob Burns Film Center.
