Who Are we?
We are Destress Effect from East Haven High School; a group of freshmen students working towards relieving stress in teens and adults. Our goal is to improve people’s quality of life. We are designing an app and creating a gum to help the users achieve this goal. Our gum has been designed to release flavors that instantly benefit the users stress levels. Similarly, our app has been developed to tackle all aspects of stress. By implementing features like food suggestions, workout generators, coloring pages and organization tools, the app progressively helps alleviate stress in a user’s life. We are working to test all facets of our app and gum in order to collect the needed data that proves our solution is a viable.

Alec- “My hobbies are building and sports. Also, I like to be creative. I am very hands-on, I like to build because it relaxes me. I am very interested in learning how to be a better writer and thinker in this class. I have learned future skills in my Digital Skills 21 class such as learning to send a professional and well-formulated email. I think it is good we have two different ideas and, are combining them which helped make our solution even bigger, better, and more effective. I can't wait to see if stress can be stopped with the olfactory senses.”

Erin-“My hobby is playing basketball. I am interested in doing research to create products that solve issues, and I can’t wait to see how the app comes out. It was difficult to come up with a tangible solution that hasn't been created yet, but in this Digital Skills 21 class, I have learned how to use technology and how to organize my priorities. I have also learned how to think outside the box.”
