CC17 - Design and build a new Android mobile app for a climate change application
Project start and end dates:
2020-03-10 to 2020-05-01
Create a prototype android mobile app for users of a climate change software product we are building.
We need a mobile application that allows ordinary citizens to view actions they can take, track their progress, complete tasks, and upload proof (pictures and videos). They can also chat and request help from trusted authorities.
The mobile app will be a prototype that helps us identify the actual mobile app requirements and design, and desired user experience.
Some suggested content and features will be provided at the start of the project. Ultimately the content, layout, and technology are up to you – use your creativity!
We asked McNeese students to build a mobile application that allows ordinary citizens to view actions they can take, track their progress, complete tasks, and upload proof (pictures and videos). They can also chat and request help from trusted authorities.
The mobile app they produced is a prototype that helps us identify the actual mobile app requirements and design, and desired user experience.
We would like to thank the students and teaching staff of CSCI409 – Introduction to Mobile Application Development course. *

Software can help the world respond to climate change impacts and disasters.
In 2019 we set out to investigate if there is a need for a solution that gives citizens personalized help preparing for and recovering from climate change impacts and lets trusted authorities assist them and report on their results.
As part of this effort, a great deal of market and technical research was conducted over the last few years. Over 140 students have been involved so far, in dozens of academic institutions in Canada and internationally.
Our greatest finding is the willingness of citizens to take responsibility and help themselves, their neighbors and community plan for, mitigate and recover from climate change impacts and disasters. We also confirmed that a software solution can be built to help overcome the barriers they face when trying to do so.
Now we’re working on a prototype and sharing our findings and progress. Find out more on our OASIS project website!

A Riipen Project
Riipen is your online platform for virtual project-based learning
Get hands-on support from our students through an in-class project or virtual internship.
- In-class projects allow you to connect with one of our educators to embed your project into the students’ curriculum. Become the real-life case study for students in the classroom!
- Virtual internships are similar to in-person internships, except they are project-based with a clear outcome and the engagement is primarily done online.
