“Guess the Country Quiz!”
About this Project:
Americans are notorious for their lack of geography skills and understanding of the world's diverse cultures. We wanted to create a project that's designed to tackle precisely just that. We wanted to give an opportunity for everyone to test their current geography skills and see how much they know about the different countries and the different countries in the world. We wanted to develop questions that would tell the users things about the country they are being tested on and they would have a predetermined list of countries to choose from, which they will be told about before the quiz begins. They would have to guess the country from the list based on the clues given by the particular question.
Not only will this test the user's past knowledge but it will also tell the user new information about different world countries that they could add to their repertoire of world knowledge. Our idea was very last minute but we had heard something about Americans not knowing their geography on social media and got inspiration from that. That is why we designed a quiz that would be suitable for all demographics.

Feedback from the Judges:
I like that you have working code and not just a mock-up. Because of that your UI is very simple, but I understand it's a tradeoff: nice visuals on mock-ups, or actual code that works!
Also congratulations on documenting your code so well. It is important to comment the code and you did that very clearly.
The issue you are tackling is very real, even more so outside of New York City. Lots more needs to be done to provide education to Americans about the World.
Thank you for a record-breaking 14th anniversary event! Comments are officially closed until next year.
