Abstract

High school is a difficult transition. Students are stressed due to more responsibilities in addition to challenging classes. As a result, a lot of students are falling asleep during the school day. StayUp is an app that targets IMSA sophomores, and students who may be struggling to manage their time and stay awake during classes. Our goal is to prevent students from sleeping in class so they can get the quality education they deserve. We do this by designing a smartwatch app that reads biometric data provided by the watch to determine if a student is falling asleep. The app will then discreetly alert the student by vibrating their watch to wake them up. This will prevent them from losing precious class time and lead to a higher quality education.
