We're a student leadership and team building program for middle - high school students. Students are tasked with identifying a social cause that impacts their lives, school, and/or communities. They are placed in key leadership roles on a Scrum Team to develop a solution. They build out the solution from concept to full blown web application and present it through a Demo Day.
Students at Fictitious Middle School want a more active role in their community. They decided the street potholes are causing safety and financial concerns for the residents. They decide to develop a web app that brings awareness to their concerns, identifies all the potholes in their community, and sends an email alert to the Mayor's office to address the issues. The website must provide users the ability to submit pictures of potholes. In addition, it will give history of the community and educational information about potholes. Finally, the campaign and content should be easy to share and promote on social media.
Working in Sprints using a Service Learning Canvas (SLC), focused teams unleash creativity, adapt through fast learning cycles, collaborate through team building activities, and iterate towards success. Students stay motivated as they consistently see work getting done in small increments until final web application is completed.LEARN MORE ABOUT SLC
Students will use the Service Learning Canvas to create a set of hypothesis that they will set out to validate in short cycles using the Scrum Framework. With each small cycle, students deliver value to the community, get feedback on their goals, and validate their assumptions - students get much quicker feedback without having to wait to the end of the semester or year.VIEW DEMO WEB APP
