The Story.

Innovator(s)

WeCode KC is an organization that serves the youth by exposing young people to technology in the forms of various programming languages, cyber security, virtual reality, and other computer science projects. Their goal is to give youth the opportunity to learn technology concepts and leadership skills.

Problem

How might we reach more teenagers in the Kansas City region to share WeCodeKC’s programs/events and mission?

Solution

Our solution is to create an interactive and flashy-looking advertisement directed towards young people. A game would hold the teenagers' attention for longer, and only including basic information would prevent the users from being overwhelmed. The official WeCode website (and the company's social media platforms) will be linked, in case the user desires more in-depth information.

Target Market

Teenagers and youth are the target audience of our concept, as this advertisement was directed and created with them in mind (after our interview/research work was conducted). From a quick survey and personal experience, WeCode KC's current website and social media did not grab the attention of the teenage mind efficiently.

Societal Impact

WeCode KC will see a greater interest in their programs and events. Users will have an easy-to-use and compact platform in which they can access information and other links.

Next Steps

Funding is needed to put the advertisement up on YouTube. If WeCode wishes, it could also be converted to a web page format and put up on their website as well.

Reflection

Our empathy and communication skills were definitely increased. This project also helped us refine our programming and graphic design skills.

Use of Backer Contributions

We are not currently accepting contributions from our voters. This pitch is part of the ProX competition for $5,000. We will use funding to pay for marketing and advertising to the benefit of WeCode KC.
