For his 2013 Magnet Senior Project, Nicholas McKenna worked with the Everglades Foundation, a close partner with the South Plantation magnet, to create wherEverglades, an App covering the Everglades.
The App that will be launched on April 22, 2014 for Earth Day connects the user to South Florida's rich environmental and recreational offerings.
Users can explore the restoration efforts and critical natural areas of the Everglades, as well as the fun activities they can do outdoors. They also can share their experiences with others
through social media.
Start by looking at the map. Then pick an area that looks interesting. wherEverglades provides information about each site including native flora and faun, local restoration efforts, and available recreational opportunities. Users can get directions to each place or find more information online with the help of wherEverglade's database.
Now at Brown University, Nick continued as a paid student consultant to the Everglades Foundation, working with two SPHS magnet interns to finalize the App.
