The 7 Forms of Respect quiz and assessment tool from CuriosityBased assists teams in building respectful relationships in the workplace.

A Sprout's Journey: Increasing Agricultural Awareness and Reading Proficiency Through Online Interactivity
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has caused decreasing public elementary school student engagement yet increasing comfort with low-quality online teaching. This is contributing to falling student reading capability and teachers' lack of incentive to challenge their students further through the incorporation of a science curriculum, leaving students underprepared to handle the increase in greener initiatives. To address these informational gaps, Sprout aims to deliver to elementary school students from grades 1-3 an interactive web-based storybook that introduces environmental education while increasing reading proficiencies by incorporating elements of both the English Language Arts Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards.
8.6% of the American population are not proficient in English and find it difficult to access healthcare that is predominately provided in English.

Aware is a web application that helps Facebook users retrieve their personal data, understand their Facebook activity, and adjust their privacy settings. Our team was inspired to create Aware because we noticed that young adults do not understand their Facebook data and how to protect it, despite their deep concern for information privacy.

Our hope is that through Aware, users experience a greater sense of safety and control over their Facebook experience.

Isolated seniors and disconnected teens - our application aims to bridge the inter-generational gap between youth and elders in the community.

Seniors request help for small household tasks by posting on the platform, where students can then pick up the ones which match their schedules. The more time young and old people spend together, the more both parties benefit.
