What is the problem or opportunity you have identified?
The problem we have identified is charging your phone in public wall outlet. The phone on the floor gets dirty and becomes a safety hazard by placing cords where people can trip and injure themselves or the phone can get damaged. Cell phone screens rarely get cleaned, so germ buildup and transfer of germs and bacteria is a problem. People need an easily accessible method to clean their phones. One opportunity we discussed was making use of the back of the phone case which is highly underutilized and you have to buy a new case for every addon for the back of the phone. Please see the "Design Process Tab" on our website.
Provide a description of your proposed solution or innovation (product or service) and how it is both innovation and effective.
Our solution is a marketing campaign for our new company called Phone Shield Corporation. The Phone Shield Corporation will design a phone hammock made out of an antimicrobial cloth to keep the phone off of the ground to prevent germs and bacteria from getting on the phone. This will also prevent the phone from getting damaged and people from tripping on the cord. Phone Shield Corporation will also design a phone case with interchangeable parts to fit your needs. The addons for the PhoneBacks will be applied using adhesive tape that is removable. Please see our "Design Process" Tab on our website.
How does your project address the overall Expo Fest theme of What If?
Our project addresses the theme of What If by stating, “What if there was a better way to charge a phone using a wall charger?”“What if we could make better use of the backside of the phone which is not used now?” “What if cell phone screens were cleaned on a regular basis?” Please see our "Design Process" Tab on our website.
Describe how you plan to collect and apply data to support the need for and relevance of your proposed solution.
We will collect data from surveys conducted to the general public and we will research the amount of bacteria on an average phone case. We will experiment on how effective and beneficial the phone case is in our school hallways. Please see the "Lab Report" tab on our website for more information
Is there any particular aspect of the project with which your team would like assistance or feedback? (Not required)
Throughout the project we have been provided with assistance from Mr. Pace, Commercial Sewing, Ward Leonard, Mr. Tanguay, Mrs. Minicucci, and Mr. Viellieux they helped us with guidance, sewing, preparedness, apparel, and marketing.(see expert imput page on our website)
Is there anything else you would like to tell us about your project? (Not required)
Our sophomore team was in academics for the past two weeks, and Ms. Cameron Audia gave us permission to finish off Launchpad and our website by Friday, 5/24/19 at 2pm. (the end of our school day). We Beta Tested our website to the teachers in our school to see if different browsers can view the website differently. Some teachers reported that the Iphone7 and older versions of Explorer caused the website to be viewed incorrectly. Our website works best using Google Chrome for the optimum viewing experience. Thanks for your help, The PhoneShield Team
