PROJECT GOAL: Due to varying circumstances, children are sometimes left home alone with minimal communication from their parents. TaskBug provides families with a low-cost, portable, and effective solution, letting children 12 and under notify their parents of task completion or any alerts through our device to our app.
As exasperated through the COVID-19 pandemic, children growing in isolated environments may experience adverse effects on their mental health and development. This occurs more so in families, especially those in lower socioeconomic levels, where the parents often work all day to take care of their families and cannot afford as much quality time with their kids. This may impair their academic achievement and socioemotional development. Children require monitoring and care, and TaskBug relieves some of the everyday challenges faced by working parents, including reminders to complete tasks and to track such activities.
