School: Elise Middle School

Elise Elite is a rookie FLL team consisting of 6th and 8th-grade students. We are an all-female team that strongly believes in the empowerment of women to contribute to the advancement of STEM fields. Elise Elite has a fierce determination to make a positive impact in our community through our innovation. Our strong ideals have fueled us to use what we have wisely in our pursuit of cooperation, creativity, and greater accessibility in our society.  
Our school, Elise Middle, was established in 1903. The school is very spread out and the buildings are not connected. We have a student at our school who is blind and we noticed he had a hard time getting around safely and independently.  To provide support to this student, we use the app Flipgrid to create "EarSight". With this app, the student identifies the QR code using a braille trigger on the classroom door. The student scans the QR code and a voice tells you where you are, the subject, and who the teacher is. It will help visually impaired students navigate around school.
