Queen Anne’s students share idea for a Gratitude app with Harvard University

Friday 12th January 2018

Through our BrainCanDo programme, Queen Anne’s School will be working in collaboration with scientists from an organisation called ‘Research Schools International’ on a project exploring the impact of gratitude on student wellbeing.

Based on previous research, we know that expressing gratitude regularly is linked to overall wellbeing and happiness and so we would like to see how this translates and impacts our school community here at Queen Anne’s.

On Wednesday 10 January, we welcomed Dr Christina Hinton from Harvard University to meet with some of our Sixth Form pupils, our Head of Computer Science and Head of Psychology to begin to design the project.

The girls plan to develop a ‘Gratitude’ App that could be used by pupils in the school so that they can easily take time every day to express their thanks to someone. We are very excited to be a part of this project and are looking forward to continuing to work on the design this year.

 

We will keep you posted on the developments.
