If you ever saw these three kids coding together, you'd think they were lifelong buddies pursuing a shared passion in computer science and problem-solving. In their year of being classmates at SG Code Campus, this is not far from the truth!
Intrigued by the world of wearable technology for health monitoring, Team Konvicshon recognised that health is one of the most common concerns in our lives. Plenty of people have health-tracking apps, or even wristbands. They wanted to take it one step further by creating a wristband connected to your mobile device that can advise on on your fitness routine and recommend suitable sports, based on your age, gender, steps, heart rate and even BMI. The wristband and corresponding app, which they called “ One Step Further”, was targeted at children aged from 8 to 12, as opposed to most wristbands which are meant for adults.
After attending Basics 4
and a holiday bootcamp together, they submitted their health tracking app in the Infocomm Media Development Authority of Singapore's (IMDA) CodeXtremeApps hackathon
. This nation-wide coding competition seeks to challenge minds and inspire innovative solutions for current issues that affect us. Each year, our Code Campers take part in this nation-wide coding competition to test their coding chops and teamwork (and have fun while doing so!). In line with the 2018 theme of “Changing Our World with AI”, teams were challenged to solve real problems and improve our lives with new and innovative solutions through the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Armed with their vision of making the world a healthier and more active place for children, these kids are certainly taking their coding learning journey many steps further!
