About this Project:

The challenge the project addresses is that schools usually don’t target students' career and don’t place their budget in the right place. For example, there are students in computer science high school who only went there because it was the closest school and may be interested in a different career. However, because the majority of students interested in computer science goes to that school, the student’s interest gets overshadowed. Therefore, the project I have created is a student job poll in which the students in high school get to place their input, and the results can be analyzed and examined to see what most students prefer in each school.

The idea has first started with the founder of Candogram, Henning Seip, who has created the code for a Full Stack Development. He taught students how to build a server from scratch and each student worked on their own Full-Stack assignment. Throughout the process, I have learned about the development of the full stack using MySQL, terminals, and the job of a server and client. There have been many errors that I learned from and engaged with different information.

More About this Project

The link I provided in the project link takes you to the completed project. High schoolers can access the poll by putting in the school they attend, their email, and choose the career that they are interested in. Afterwards, there's going to be a blue button ("SHOW POLL RESULTS") right next to the green button ("SAVE YOUR CHOICE") where the results can be used to be analyzed.

Great job on your presentation! I like the way you identified an important issue in schools regarding students' career interests and school offerings. Your idea of implementing a student job poll to gather input and analyze preferences shows a great understanding of the problem. It's cool how you've connected the founder's experience in Full Stack Development to the development of the project. I am not sure if poll results should be visible only to faculty or students as well. I would try to include few questions regarding interests and preferences to help narrow down selections for students. Keep up the great work

It's a great website with helpful resources and links towards the majors I'm interested in. It helps me find out what I'm supposed to do in order to achieve my current wanted job

Congratulations on a very challenging coding and computer science project. I have not seen a working full stack web site with a database and visualization before at high school level
