Our Idea

Why did your team choose to focus on this challenge?

Our team decided to choose this and focus on the problem because we think there is a problem when exchange students come over to Ireland and want to continue playing sport in Ireland and they don’t know where to find the sporting clubs so they can use this app to find the locations of the sporting clubs. They can also contact the clubs that the students would like to join while they are staying in the country of Ireland.

What have you learned about the challenge that you didn't know before?

Our team have learned a lot about this topic since we have started the big Idea. We have learned that when exchange students come over to the island of Ireland they don’t play sports because they don’t know how to find and contact clubs. When some students go back to there country they do not go back playing sports because they haven’t played in so long so we decided to make a app for exchange students so they can continue to play sports here in Ireland

Outline the specific problem you would like to solve for your Hero and two or three solutions you think would help.

For my hero I would like to solve the inclusion because all people need to be included it in a team. One solution can be that people in class or where ever everyone gets treated the same way with that thing anyone can't be excluded. Other good solution it's that people can talk with the people who are not included in a group to make friends. Also the Irish students need to try to talk more with the exchange students otherwise, they won't any Irish friends ad they wouldn't learn many English.

Ask your Mentor anything.

What is the main issue you face when abroad? The language barrier is a big one, I feel I cannot connect with anyone abroad. This causes me to feel lonely and depressed knowing I have no one to talk to.
