problems to solve

Szkoła Małego Inżyniera 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:

  • creating a robust and fraud-resistant voting system for schools so that it cannot be exploited by bots,
  • making the solution capable of handling heavy traffic loads.

solutions

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.

It’s worth mentioning that Szkoła Małego Inżyniera is just one of many projects that Volkswagen decided to develop with Merixstudio during our longstanding collaboration. There were, among others, websites supporting their CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) programmes such as “Niebieskie Granty” - a website for raising ecological awareness in local communities including advanced implementations of JavaScript, Ajax and CSS3, Google Maps API and Drupal CMS. or “Mini Handball” - a website for promoting a healthy lifestyle and physical activity with Drupal CMS and beautiful front-end JavaScript animations .
