World Connections Climate Change App by Ilisagvik College STEM students
What is World Connections?
World Connections will be a user friendly application that works with
citizen science to receive data of about the changing climate while
also acting as a fun and helpful app.
How is it fun and helpful? World Connections will incorporate
information on what is happening with the world due to Global
Warming and Greenhouse Gases, but it will do this by adding a
What are the main ideas and points of World Connections? This
application will work on issues of HAARP (High frequency Active
Auroral Research Program), the ice movement, air pollution, and
ways to replace or defuse Greenhouse Gases.
What is HAARP and how will this app
High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, or
HAARP, is a high-powered radio transmission research
facility that also researches the ionosphere and is
operated by the US Navy, Air Force, and several
universities located in Gakona, Alaska—close to
Anchorage on the eastern side.
The facility is shooting the sky with energy-rays and
leading on chemical trails causing the climate to warm
and complications for people living near the area. HAARP
is also capable of causing earthquakes.
This app will help with HAARP problems by marking the
areas where the HAARP is contaminating the land and
air by using social media.
How can it help the ice
World Connections can help with the ice movement by
tracking the yearly drifting of ice packs with pictures or
using radar; whereas, without this Barrow Whalers can
run into ice, be near ice that is too thin, and scientists
will not have a tool as convenient as this.
Furthermore, World Connections can help track down
new wildlife coming in because of Global Warming and
help find stranded people on the ice.
Air Pollution: what?
Air pollution causes holes in the atmosphere to appear,
warming the planet.
To help prevent further pollution from happening in the
future World Connections will add a camera option that
adds a special filter that shows Greenhouse Gases within

Around the world people are coming up with different
types of Spectrometers and one corporation, Public Labs,
has come up with a Do it Yourself Spectrometry Kit.
Public Labs is a good alternative to World Connections,
but is bulkier and cost money.
What is spectrometry? Colored light is a blend of many
colors, but with a spectrometer device colors are split
apart, such as a prism.
Why are Greenhouse Gases
Greenhouse Gases rip holes in the ozone layer of the
atmosphere causing the Earth to heat up and changing
the climate, so finding ways to prevent this can help
How can World Connections help? World Connections will
incorporate a game that acts as a puzzle but is actually
coming up with new chemical compounds to replace or
defuse greenhouse gases; this game will have options to
see the players’ score, scores are determined by the
amount of compounds you make and can be compared
to other players.
Climate Change is a severe problem, but with a
simple application problems can be fixed.
