James Klenk Capstone

​My Capstone is an electronic GPS device that is designed for a college student when they are on campus in case of a situation they have the choice to press a button on a keychain and when the press the button it allows campus security to know there location. I started this project to do two things, Learn how to code and to create something that could possible impacts a community in a positive way. I started this project know using the knowledge that I had on from sophomore year and I built off of that. I learned more about the different type of wifi shields and Arduino that are out there on the market that is being used for personal and professional uses. I also learned about different programming languages like C++ and how code interfaces with a different type of interfaces for data storage and collection. The reason that I decided to market my capstone to colleges student was based on my sister and the story she told me about her time at the temple and the different strategies that her sorority put in place to make sure that the people apart of the sorority were ok when they walked outside. I pitched my Idea for a capstone to Braskem to see if I could get money to make it into a reality, They gave me the money that I asked for and a Mentor. This allowed me to Make my capstone into a reality where I could test and market my product. Throughout my capstone, it came clear to me and my mentors that I was not an expert at understanding coding every well. Even with the trouble of still learning code I push thought with help with my mentor teaching me about reading the code and working through debugging different codes.  While my capstone isn’t at the scope that I wanted I am satisfied with my results.
