Welcome to the official blog to TheraOrb, the electronic stress ball!
An innovative take of the generic stress ball, TheraOrb was made primarily to aid people suffering from anxiety and stress disorders/conditions and have difficulty expressing their emotions. This could lead to misunderstandings, suicide, and in some rare cases, violence. Our mission is to create a safe outlet for mentally ill kids and to help their social workers improve their treatment.
The theme for this year’s Expo is Empathy by Design, which means that we have to put ourselves in someone else’s shoes and create a product that solves whatever challenge they are facing. TheraOrb addresses this theme with accuracy.
Mini-Expo, an event that puts all the Expo ideas in our grade level against each other for judging, takes place on March 9th – less than a month away. We got off to a slow, rough start, but everyone and everything is running at a fast pace. Given the time we have and the pace we are working at, we will be able to complete all of our given tasks.
