North Carolina State University junior Ryan Catalfu has lent his knowledge of computer science to help create a website for parents during coronavirus. The resource is for busy parents who are homeschooling their children.
Catalfu decided to pursue the project after realizing he could make it and complete an assignment for his English class, WRAL reports.
“We were told to address a problem that could be solved in some way using writing, something that could be a real problem that’s facing the world,” Catalfu told WRAL.
In conversations with his parents, Catalfu decided that it would be helpful for him to help with homeschooling resources. “A lot of parents are for the very first time having to teach their kids or at least be a facilitator,” Catalfu told WRAL.
The site is called Elementary Education at Home: A guide to surviving the coronavirus pandemic with elementary school children. He includes resources like short videos, quizzes, lesson plans, documentaries, online books, curriculum guides and educational games, according to WRAL.
