When Windward faculty came into our class, we got a lot of feedback. Some tough questions were asked, that we were unsure of what the answer was, but they helped us know what we wanted to do moving forward. We learned that safety and motivation would be something we had to focus on. Insurance, gas, and other components were factors, so we had to add these to our solution. Additionally, we talked to two faculty members at our school, Jacqueline Varney and Rebecca Yeh, that helped us figure out what could actually be done. Our solution is for the Windward community. In order to get students excited about our solution, we want to have some sort of reward system, possibly including gift cards and prizes similar. Our solution will have a positive impact on our community because it will diminish CO2 emissions, cause less traffic, and build friendships. We plan on measuring the gas used by each individual car to school versus the gas used by the carpool in one car. We expect to see reduced gas use in our results.
