I have finally submitted my prototype app! This is my first step to chase after my dream of helping animal organization through app. Ever since semester 1, my group (Kaithe and Steffi) and I worked really hard to think of an app and plan the business plan. We participated in an event called, Technovation Competition. Technovation is a program to encourage girls from grade 6 to 12 to develop an “early interest in technology through an ambassador program.” This program help girls to become “entrepreneurs to be able to create real products that can be pitched to real investors.”
It is a good experience for us to take first step to help animals and connect with the community.
“Furever” aims to help raise funds for animal shelter organizations so that they would be able to upkeep more animals, and decrease the frequency of animals being put to sleep. There are four animal categories to choose from, consisting of dogs, bears, monkeys and leopards. After choosing a species, a virtual pet that connects to an actual animal in one of our organizations you would be automatically assigned. Taking care of your virtual pet is similar to how you would take care of a real pet. You would have to buy food to sustain it, toys to keep it content, and to buy those items as stated before, you would need to pay with real money. The amount of money spent, would go to help the organizations upkeep the actual animal of that virtual pet. Furthermore, pictures and videos of your animal would be sent from the organization.
This is my certificate for participating in the event! –> technovation_certificate
