Startup Weekend EDU was an amazing experience. The idea is people of various skillsets, whether it be business, design, or development, come together around ideas that can be pitched and voted on by everyone, and then form teams to create the product in 48 hours.
I think we were the only group who started from nothing and completed a functional prototype of our idea, which is called "I'm in the Band." The person who had the idea, Adam Selzer, thought to extend his musical talents to the education realm by creating a tool that allows people to post videos and lyrics to learning songs, and have kids sing along and then share their video with others. The end result is a synchronized chorus of up to 3 other people when you play all the videos at once.
I thought this was a wonderful idea, because learning a song is a much better way to memorize your history lessons than flashcards! We had a Ruby on Rails developer and a PHP developer on the team as well, and I took on the graphic design and front-end coding responsibilities. Together, we created the functional prototype and actually went to the Zeum Museum thanks to a connection from someone in our team and tested our products with kids! The museum allowed us to set up a computer inside and before you knew it, all of us were singing alongside kids and parents to Adam's 50 States song (remember, before this weekend no one had ever heard of the product and we were a team that didn't know each other only hours ago).
You'll find below our "commercial" video and our pitch. I created the video using Pinnacle and edited and put together the clips of video we took at the museum. We're on Facebook too! (We kind of went all out :)
