Selim's Team, MIT - Massachusetts Institute of Technology

These are times, unlike anything we have seen in our lifetimes. Unlike previous generations, before us, we have the power to make a difference by creating our own mobile technology to guide and aid us as we face this unique challenge.

We invite our fantastically creative MIT App Inventor community from all ages to put their ingenuity to good use and create socially conscious mobile apps that will help defeat the spread of the disease, aid our local communities and give strength to our fellow world citizens in these difficult times.

We need apps that inform, connect, and inspire people in your community and around the world.

We invite you to:

– create ingenious apps!

– share them on the MIT App Inventor project gallery and Google Play Store

– submit your app to MIT App Inventor App of the Month international contest

– create a blog about your Computational Action project

– create YouTube App Inventor tutorials to inspire others to learn how to take part in Computational Action

– share links to your app project, blog, video tutorial and other work in social media under the hashtag #AppInventorCoronavirusChallenge

App Ideas, Apps that:
– inform people of the facts about the virus
– inform people about how to stay safe and healthy
– inform people how to wash their hands and otherwise maintain good hygiene
– dispel wrong information and fake news about the disease
– inform very young children about the virus in the form of games
– connect people for purposes of child-care
– help people with their groceries and other emergency shopping
– connect people to reliable and up-to-date sources of information
– connect people to each other in case of an emergency
– inform people of the sources of medical help available in a given locality
– alert people of an impending dangerous situation
– alert close family, friends in case of sickness and ask for help
– help care for the elderly and other vulnerable members of our community
– inform about volunteer opportunities in a community
– inspire people with quotes of wisdom and courage to remind them to be hopeful, kind and strong

Rest assured that as the human family we will come out stronger, wiser and more unified than ever before as we learn to eradicate this disease together.

Now is your chance to shine and do your part. Stay healthy. Stay smart.

MIT App Inventor. Change the World, One App at a Time.
