Szkoła Małego Inżyniera (Little Engineer School) is a website supporting Volkswagen in spreading their values and building their brand awareness among the youngest. This is a non-profit educational project targeted at primary school children - its key objective is awakening students’ passion for robotics and automated technology as well as a creative and proactive approach.
The key challenges were:
monthly visits on the website
successful editions of Szkoła Małego Inżyniera
votes took in the latest edition
months of development
Merixstudio was responsible for developing the project from scratch covering full-fledged web development consultancy, quality assurance, software development and design services. One of the main milestones to achieve were: creating a full design for the website, implementing a bot-resistant voting system for schools (one of the ways to achieve it was integration with an SMS gateway for increased verification), allowing schools to submit applications via a website, creating a back office panel for managing applications and voting process.
an application form allowing schools to report their participation in the project
a system allowing voting for particular schools and choosing winners; this included an SMS verification of the voters
a powerful search engine allowing users to see school listing and improving their findability
an advanced back office panel allowing management of applications, voting process, and website’s content
