About this Project:
My project addresses COVID and the effects it has had on the world. It described what has changed in the world since COVID has become a major issue. At first, my project was designed having a navigation bar and there were different sections. Each section had a description of how COVID stopped a certain area of life. You could go to a different page from the page you were on. All the pages were linked to each other to make it easier for people to get around on the website. I then decided I wanted to change it a little but keep the same idea. I got rid of the navigation bar and started over.

This is a really simple and easily understood way to drive home the points that we should all be following restrictions in order to reduce the instances of Covid. I'm in an area that's been on fairly strict lockdown for a while now, so it was really nice to put myself in different scenarios and have to think about what I will do in the future.

Nice idea to include a game in the slides to engage the audience. Well-written and really good pictures to show the point. Suggest introducing the idea of a game so that people will know that they are playing a game.
It made me think about my actions and the importance of being careful. It also enlightened me about students' perceptions about missing school, etc. The web interactive worked very well.
Hafa Adai! I am an operational meteorologist at The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), National Weather Service (NWS) Weather Forecasting Office (WFO) in Guam. I was part of Mouse Corps between 2011 and 2013, and I participated at Emoti-Con myself! I am super excited and looking forward to seeing this year’s projects.

Good storytelling coupled with an easy to use interface, this project has excellent potential to educate the general public about how personal decisions affect how certain events such as pandemics progress. Good Job!

I like the idea as it's something big and something current that needs attention.

I liked how you used the problem we are facing right now, a pandemic and made a game based of scenarios that can be used in real life. I had fun thinking deeply about what could and couldn't happen in a certain scenarios. Nice work.
