Today I want to introduce you to Emma Yap, from Abbotsleigh Junior School.
Emma is 10 years old and is the NSW finalist of the Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero competition. Emma joined the competition on her own with an amazing idea.
The app is called Emma’s Wagon and it will help parents to organise carpools and offer rides to school.
Carpooling helps reduce traffic and pollution and saves parents time, but scheduling rides can be difficult.This app makes it easy and safe for parents to organise carpools and offer rides to school or extracurricular activities. Parents can request and approve rides for their children, which are automatically scheduled and Google-mapped.
The app is safe for schools and community groups because use is restricted to administrator-approved groups. It encourages drivers to offer rides by measuring kilometres of travel saved and also the community impact on local traffic.
The app is free to use and supported by in-app community advertisements.
Here is the the pitch video for the app:
And here is some screenshots of the app:
Stay tuned for more posts about the other finalists in the competition.
