Our inspiration was the old American comic series "Peanuts". Considered among the greatest comic strips of all time, Peanuts is also regarded as one of the most influential and well-written comic strips of all time. We were inspired by the lessons and plots of the comics. We decided that Peanuts would make a perfect template for our educative simulation for children.
How it works
The way our simulation works is quite simple. The transition of slides provides for an animation effect. Powered by the Java code, the simulation is able to ask questions and respond to the answers of the user.
Challenges I ran into
We ran into many challenges, which we have eventually overcome by the power of photoshop. Matching colors of speech bubbles and comics was an overwhelming task. But despite the challenging graphics, the hardest challenge was the Java code made to suit the game.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We are glad to have made a contribution to the world of education of children. The whole team is glad to have good quality code and design used in a carefully planned simulation.
What I learned
First and foremost, we learned how to cooperate, brainstorm, and find the best ideas together. We also improved out photoshop skills. We learned a lot of new code that we applied today.
What's next for Charlie's Endless Questions
Our plans for this simulation is to advance it further. Improve the graphics, questions, and the flow. This will take us longer then 36 hours but the whole team is determined to make a difference in children's education.
