This project was conducted by Ava Sealander, and Lindsay Nevin, who are local Girl Scouts in the town of Brooklin Maine. The "Tennis Court Cam" project was for their Silver Award, an award achieved by Cadette level Girl Scouts. The award is based on the idea of helping a local community with something they need that is self sustaining. To finish the project they needed to work for 50 hours on the project, planning and conducting the necessary components of getting a webcam for the town tennis courts.
About the Project;
The "Tennis Court Cam" project is a webcam, based at the Brooklin Elementary School. Its main purpose, is for citizens of the town of Brooklin to have the ability to see if the tennis courts are being used or not. Because we all know it is aggravating when we drive ten minutes, be told we can not do what we wanted to, and have to drive back home. This project is mainly for the sole purpose of convenience. It also allows summer, and year-round residents to save gas, and a trip to the school that may not be needed.
Notes from Ava and Lindsay:
To all users of the Tennis Court Cam,
We had a blast working on this project, with all of the research and the relief that we felt when the camera was finally up and running. We would also like to thank all those who helped us with this project, especially our parents Stacia, and Robyn. Without their help and planning skills, we definitely would not have been able to achieve our silver awards. Thank you Amy Bebel, Greg Summers and Jeremiah Savage for assisting us with all of the technological and website components. Also thank you to anyone who knew about the project and supported us, because without your support we wouldn't have been able to achieve this great feat. I hope you all enjoy using our camera. Thanks to all of you,
Lindsay Nevin, and Ava Sealander
