We're going to go into a "how we built this" series and talk about our experience as high school students in a startup. Before we go into this, we wanna give an overview post so you can get to know our company more.
Our high school school, like many others, has over 100 clubs that span a variety of different interests and activities. Despite this, many students are not active club members–not because they aren't interested in clubs, but because they don't know when events and meetings are happening. At the beginning of each semester, our school holds a club fair where each club is present and students are able to sign up for clubs. Other than this–and a convoluted document hidden in the depths of the school website–there aren't any other resources or ways for students to figure out when or where club meetings and events are. When we realized how prominent this issue was among students–not only at our school, but also in schools nearby–Clustr+ was born.
What is Clustr+?
Clustr+ is an IOS app which allows school clubs to create a page on the app where they can post updates and events that the rest of the student body can view. This app helps create more transparency within the school and allows everyone to have easy access to clubs.
Clustr+ allows club admins to create an account on the app where they can make a page for their club. On their club page, they will be able to post new events and updates for their club. On the member side of the app, students will be able to simply scroll through the various clubs. When they click on a certain club, the club page will appear, informing them of upcoming events and updates.
