It's more than what happens in the classroom that adds up to a child receiving a great education. Fun and diverse summertime opportunities ensure that kids will develop their own creative pursuits, expand their education, and spend their summers constructively. Blueprint4SummerSTL was designed to be an easy-to-use mobile app that connects ALL St. Louis-area kids to summer learning opportunities.
With an innovative idea to use technology to give access of information to those that needed it, Maxine Clark, founder of Build-A-Bear Workshop, looked to Technology Partners and their team of experts. The idea was to create a web application that pushed information to people in communities, especially those underresourced and marginalized, helping them get their children involved in programs and activities during the summer.
Wanting to get this new concept to market quickly, Blueprint4SummerSTL asked Technology Partners for help. With our proprietary concept design sessions, we were able to wireframe an application that would be revolutionary for families in the community. The idea was to keep the application simple enough that the format could be rolled out in other cities.
With a system that even the St. Louis Post Dispatch turns to for their information on local summer programs, Blueprint4SummerSTL has become the main resource for families looking to keep their children active and involved. Over 4,500 camps and programs are now involved, and parents have come to rely on the web application to plan out their child's summer activities.
By setting the bar for the industry with its unique business model, they have become one of the most respected firms in the IT space.
