Tell us about your idea

A place for friends to come together and explore new and exciting interests. It’s a perfect platform for large groups of friends looking for new ways to connect during this isolated period. Packages or ”courses” can be taken with a group of classmates or used as a way to connect with new people. One example of a course could be a portrait night for friends. The platform would provide instructions on how to create breakout rooms and have questions available for friends to ask each other while painting. The platform could also help facilitate a game night with family and friends to play charades or celebrity, or could be used to take writing classes together.  It can be used by anyone looking to keep their communities together when they can't be together.

What part(s) of the pre-COVID school system do you wish to leave in the past? Why?

The pre-COVID school system in many ways, limited students’ free time and ability to be with their families. The workload and schedules of students should leave enough time for them to lead their own personal lives, and spend time with their families.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.

I’m a student at an NYC private school. I am in a design thinking class where we have been pondering the questions posed by IDEO. Every weekend my family has a game night, but we are always confused on what games to play and how to play them. I think a service like this would be extremely helpful for many different kinds of people right now.
