About this Project:
‘Rude Awakening’ is made where there are two mini scenarios, both of which include pixelated special effects and choices that the player/user can pick on to see which one is correct and which one is wrong. Along with these, there is also an explanation that is given to go with the correct choice that is chosen. All in all, the app is basically an interactive, informative, choice game that allows its users to play and learn all at the same time.

What I do all day at work?
I educate people on cybersecurity and deal with all things IT related.
I'm a tech enthusiast who enjoys educating people about AI and Cybersecurity. I got involved with Mouse.org through my work at ArcherPoint and love seeing how the next generation is making the world a better place. As technology evolves, I believe it's essential to adapt and diversify skills to succeed.

Types of work that I do
Kathy is a Biomedical Engineer who works with very cool medical devices. For the last 8 years Ms. Rutherford has taught robotics for FIRST Lego League, FTC and FRC’s 130 pound robots! Kathy also works with the Greater NY Girl Scouts and has judged FIRST FRC, FTC, World Robot Olympiad, NJ Science Olympiad and Makeblock’s MakeX Spark competitions.

Gurpreet Lally is a Sr. Community Manager at CareerVillage.org, a non-profit that uses a Q&A platform to connect students with free career advice from professionals in the fields they want to get into.

The graphics were cool and it looked like a fun game that would entertain folks. My suggestion is to make the font slightly more legible and to perhaps incorporate a Next Steps section. After students learn about terrorism, what can they do to get involved? Giving them different avenues to help with the cause may help to increase their engagement.
