About this Project:

This project is mainly about different problems that happen around the world. Two of them are storms and poverty. I came up with this idea to make an app that could educate people on these topics. The purpose of this project is so that people are aware of what is happening today.

Makes Me Think

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Director of Program Performance at Mouse — Emoti-Con Judge
What an engaging game! And you've chosen two important topics. I appreciated being able to test my knowledge – and I love the "try again" screens! It'd be great to have different styles of questions – maybe fill-in-the-blank questions or some kind of scenarios where people choose what to do (like you did with the dust storm question). And perhaps having some takeaway points at the end of each game – action steps for people interested in preparing themselves for storms, and for people looking to make a difference for those impacted by poverty. Great job!

Excellent development! I enjoy the game and the immediate relief I felt after surviving the storm. The concept was both informative and interesting. Storms and Poverty has the potential to be integrated into the classrooms to make life-saving information more accessible through games. I also admire the idea of raising awareness about the poverty epidemic and would like to see it expanded further and perhaps engage app users by equipping them with ways to help the cause. Great job, Jacqueline!! 🌪❤️💡🎮

Great job of highlighting two important and related topics that impact so many lives! I love the imagery you chose, particularly for the storms game. The "try again" screens were also particularly clever in that game. Playing each game made me think about the interconnectedness of poverty and extreme weather, particularly because of climate change.

As you develop these ideas, I wonder if you could somehow connect the games to show that interplay even more. These are such important issues, I can't wait to see how you grow this project to help people learn more about how to care for themselves and each other in our changing world. Thanks for all this great food for thought!

👏 Product and Business Strategy Lead, Analytics at Google — Emoti-Con Judge
Great job building out the interactive quizzes and games for users to interact with. I also appreciated the diversity of topics with storms and poverty. I also really appreciated how the poverty quiz tied in climate change, education, and other topics.

One of my favorite things is the interactivity of your app. I appreciated being able to select different options, click the retry button, and your helpful notifications to users to "Click to start". Great job!
