Chiles High School student Vivian Zhou and Vika Bommineni, from Trinity Prep in Orlando, worked together with ASAP's Dr. Eren Ozguven's group as part of the Young Scholars Program (YSP) at the Florida State University (FSU). Mehmet Baran Ulak and Ayberk Kocatepe, Ph.D. candidates at FSU, mentored the students for six weeks. The high school students used the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to create a livability index for the elderly in Florida, considering multiple data sets, including factors such as access to health care, traffic crash figures, population density and transportation logistics.
The students successfully presented a poster to show their results. A local news coverage shows where Vivian Zhou, one of the participants, talks about her experience as follows: "I liked being able to visually examine a problem and solve it, I have never been able to do something like this before."
