Dr. Linda Charmaraman of the Wellesley Centers for Women and Dr. Catherine Delcourt of the Computer Science department teamed up to design an app for middle-school-age youth that encourages healthy social media use. In summer 2019, Drs. Charmaraman and Delcourt, along with summer interns Ashley Kim ’19, Cynthia Serrano Najera ’21, and Payton Vandergriff ’22, hosted a workshop at a local school to teach middle schoolers how to use social media in healthy ways and get their feedback on design prototypes of the app Drs. Charmaraman and Delcourt are creating. During this program, the team reviews their progress and next steps.
