Profile Info

College Clock is basically a clock using Google Calendar, that tells students and teachers how much time they have remaining until the end of their class or the start of their next class.

 

What inspired you to create your project?

My school previously used a really dated feature to measure this, and then removed it. I decided to recreate it after many students asked for it back as we don’t have school bells and our class times often change for different reasons. It is easier to have one tool for everyone in different places around the school to use, especially in exam season where senior students often have changing timetables.

Who influences your tech/innovation?

For this project, I was influenced by my friends and teachers. I’ve always been fascinated by software engineering.

What is your dream job?

Possibly computer science, but that could change. At this stage, as a year 10, I still haven’t quite figured out what I want to do.
