Over the past few months, three Year 6 students from the Australian International School Malaysia (AISM) have continued to develop their ReShare mobile app. The team entered an international competition for girls called Technovation earlier this year in which teams developed an app to solve a problem in their community. The AISM team emerged as semi-finalists for the Europe, Asia, Australia & New Zealand region.

The journey didn’t stop there. The young ‘scientists’ who go by the name ‘MY Tech Mooks’, recently returned from another competition, the New South Wales (NSW) Finals of the Young ICT Explorers Challenge at the University of NSW, Australia where they once again showcased their ReShare app. With more than 50 teams competing in the Years 5 to 6 Division, AISM students Megan Yap, Mia Tan, and Emily Tan came in fourth place in the competition.

The ReShare app allows people or organisations who have things to donate to list what they have available, and for organisations and charities who rely on donations to look through the list and select the things they want to receive. Once they have made their selections, the donor and receiver can communicate through the app and arrange drop off or collection. Follow the team’s progress with their app development by following their Instagram page sharewithreshare and visiting the ReShare website reshare.weebly.com.
