Sharing Our Good News
Kindly App Launch
As part of eCybermission STEM-in-Action grant , "Kindly" an anti-cyber-bullying solution was launched virtually which was attended by several students and organizations nationwide including Forbes Ignite, UNICEF, Children's Kindness Network board members and students from 10 different states, some of whom were featured in Disney's Marvel Hero episode. A demo of the solution was shown and a partnership with Children's Kindness Network was established in addition to opening up a challenge for crowd-sourcing and empowering students to code. The implementation steps started in Aug 2019 and about 500-600 hours were spent in addition to promotion, awareness, and planning for the launch event. Kudos to the team and their advisor. Great job!
