Three North Texas seventh-graders have created an app that would help keep track of volunteers like CERT members. Three North Texas seventh-graders have created an app that not only would help keep track of volunteers, but also would ensure that disaster-stricken communities get the federal aid they are entitled to.
The team has already won $17,000 in awards, $5,000 of which came from the Stem-In-Action grant, which eCybermission reserves for projects whose real-world implementation show the most promise.
It’s important because the number of volunteer hours put into a recovery effort plays a critical role in the amount of aid FEMA decides to send. Plano hasn’t used the app in an actual crisis, but it was used in a few training exercises.
None of the teens had ever developed a mobile application, so all three of them spent their free time after school learning how to use the MIT App Inventor.
The app they were building in the old software wouldn’t have been compatible with the new version, and a few weeks was not enough time to rebuild an app from the ground up.
Team Protons spent the week participating in STEM enrichment activities that led up to the final judging panel on Thursday afternoon.
Now that they are back from the competition, they want to get CERTPRO out of the development phase and into the hands of volunteers.

When the floods hit, Red Cross swift water rescue teams helped rescue more than 200 people from their flooded properties and ambulance crews helped with transportation and first aid, while staff and volunteers assisted in rest centres and at the Newcastle command and control centre. The national media has long since moved on, but staff and volunteers have spent the last year supporting local residents as they try to rebuild their lives.
