Pointers

Tracks:
  • Education: Apps that Support Diversity in Education
The disparity between women and underrepresented minorities who pass introductory computer science courses and men who pass is one of the largest across UCLA. Pointers is an online platform to aims to lessen the cultural and social barriers to academic success. Everyone learns differently, and Pointers aims to help all students by providing many different methods of learning. The platform connects students with notes, online tutors and mastery-based learning, to better prepare and practice the material they have learned in class. We are launching Pointers in Fall 2018, for students in CS 31 and 97.

Receiptless On-Campus Dining

Tracks:
  • Service: Apps for a More Livable LA
Forgoing 55,000 paper receipts can spare an entire tree. Translating this statistic to UCLA on campus housing, home of more than 15,000 residents, eliminating receipts from the four boutique dining services could spare at least 6 trees per month while saving expenses on the papers. Our goal is to develop an app and a system to help reduce receipt waste at UCLA Hill dining services by modifying and deciphering the output of the cash register to securely transfer the information that is currently printed on the paper receipt into the mobile app. Additional features will be included to increase the usability of the app for the users. Our app aims to support the UCLA Green Initiatives, conserve office expenditures, and improves the traffic flow and customer experiences in the dining boutiques.

STEAMed Carrots

Tracks:
  • Education: Apps that Support Diversity in Education
This app leverages LTL (Learning in two languages)-faculty developed lessons in teaching Math using CGI (cognitive guided instruction ) techniques. Our STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts Mathematics) faculty helped us build easy to use lessons in an iOS App for Pre-K through 6th grade students. It's fun, thought provoking, and takes you on a wonderful journey as you explore the philosophy of mathematics. Although teaching math in a diverse multi-language school doesn't require looking at the instruction differently this App will have a bilingual (trilingual?) component using language specific APIs. Now that the UCLA campus has a expanded to include not only pre-k through 6th (UCLA Lab School) but also 6th- 12th grades (Geffen Academy) finding ways to prepare students in STEAM as early as possible is key to their future success.
