New Mexico Supercomputing Challenge

Social Media and Cyber Bullying

Team: 66

School: Los Lunas High

Area of Science: Psychology


Interim: Social Media & Cyber Bullying:

Definition of the problem:
For our project, we are going to create a simulation that displays how many people are cyberbullied on any average day in America, and also which social networking site has the largest amount of cyberbullying.
---------------------------------------------------------

Plan for solving the problem:
When we are finished creating the simulation, we will most likely have a wider range of ideas for prevention of cyber bullying. But, as for now, we only have the basic prevention tips: that people can use if they are being cyberbullied.
---------------------------------------------------------

Progress:
So far, we currently have our surveys setup with 1 question which is “Have you ever been cyberbullied? If so, which of the fallowing cyber bullying social networking site(s) have you been cyberbullied on?” The 5 survey option are:
1.) No
2.) Facebook
3.) Twitter
4.) Instagram
5.) Other
These surveys are currently being filled by 100 students from grades 9-12 that attend our high school. After all of the surveys are filled we will be using Net Logo to create our simulation.

---------------------------------------------------------

Expected results:
We expect that Facebook and twitter will be the social networks with the most cases of cyber bullying.
