The life of an animal

About this Project:

This project helps tackle the problem of stray animals on the street not getting good homes or the proper care they should be getting.

As a team, we came together and realized that we all have seen the struggles of people finding animals good homes. Over the months we worked long hours to get this app up and running.

It would be on app store and we would have several attendants keeping up with the app and doing any additional features that we feel need to be added in the future.

Amazing project! It was a pleasure to see your presentation live at your school fair, and even more impressive this second time! I love the topic you chose to address: stray animals. Being from the same community your school is located in, I understand how important it is to have a resource like this when we have so many stray dogs and cats in the community. I was very impressed with your ability to understand that you may not be able to offer everything directly, so it's okay to outsource to other organizations and projects that address stray animal safety as well. Overall, really good job!

Proyecto increíble! Fue un placer ver su presentación en vivo en la feria de su escuela, ¡y aún más impresionante esta segunda vez! Me encanta el tema que elegiste para abordar: los animales callejeros. Siendo de la misma comunidad en la que se encuentra su escuela, entiendo lo importante que es tener un recurso como este cuando tenemos tantos perros y gatos callejeros en la comunidad. Me impresionó mucho su capacidad para comprender que es posible que no pueda ofrecer todo directamente, por lo que está bien subcontratar a otras organizaciones y proyectos que también aborden la seguridad de los animales callejeros. En general, ¡muy buen trabajo!

Phenomenal job! I think the ability to scan any animal on the street so that you can learn more about them is a cool idea and almost makes it feel like a Pokemon game (even though this is not a fun situation).

I wish your pitch or your slides explained a bit more about how this app actually helps stray animals besides educating people who pass them by. Does it connect users to nearby shelters that they can bring the animal to? Or safe things to feed the animal? Warn the user about how to handle the animal should it appear injured in any way?

I thought your work was very good, worthy of all the attention that each one of us can and should give. Excellent social cause, tremendous impact and I really enjoyed the project presentation video. This idea reveals a lot of sensitivity on your part, which in part justifies the creativity and effort put in, as this is the only way to get good work in UX and with great reach and social impact. It turns out to be quite pedagogical and allows, in a relatively simple way, each of us to take practical steps to improve the lives of animals, in the same way that we always want our lives to be well. Keep up the good work! I liked your performance.

Thank you for your support! Comments are closed for this year. Join us to look forward to next year's projects!
