Five primary school girls have created an app to combat bullying.
The year six students at Frankley School in New Plymouth worked together to try to combat the rising figures of bullying in New Zealand for 7 to 14 year olds.
Their app educates bullies and the bullied about the different types of bullying and what they can do to stop it – it also has a feature that reads the words on the screen to the user in case they can’t read it.
Games in the app are used to calm anxious minds and that’s something their classmates love the most.
Eva Lea, Emily Goodeve, Daina Thorpe, Aimee Neilson and Ashley Lewis, entered their app in the Tech Girls’ Movement competition which aims find the next tech girl superhero.
The app was created for the competition only and is not available to the public.
