One of our team members, has a climate change instagram page @meltingcaps since she realised people don't know as much about climate change as they think they do. She talked to a lot of her peers and realised they actually don't know the vast implications of climate change and it's consequences so we wanted to do something baout and agreed that a quiz about climate change could show people how they do r don't know about the topic.
What it does
Our project is a website on climate change along with an interactive quiz we created. What our quiz does is test the users knowledge on climate change. When they get their result, the quiz provides a link that can inform the user even more on the climate crisis.
How we built it
One of our teammates had done something similar to an interactive quiz for her java quiz, and since we are all new to java, we thought it would be a good way to get into learning java while building something of a relatively easy level challenge.
Challenges we ran into
We were not able to embedd the jar file for our quiz into the html file for our website, we did try our best but the files were not linking ot the website, we converted the file to .java and so but it did not work, sadly. We wanted to have the website go to the quiz then come back with th quiz score and then give information on sources to learn more.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Most of us are begginners when it comes to hackatons and going into was overwelming because it was hard for us to figure out what exactly we wanted to do. While discussing we came to an agreement on making a Climate Change Awareness quiz and were excited to make it come to life. Being passionate about spreading awareness was a big win for us because we always wanted others who are less knowledgble to be more informed. We then also decided to create a website with information based off the quiz and that futher helped us in accomplishing our goal of awareness.
What I learned
What we learned as a team is how to utilize our different skills to come up with our final product. Although we had minimal knowledge on different languages we were able to help each other out. We learned a lot of working in java.
What's next for Climate change Awareness Quiz
We can work on making the website interactive, and add more resources.
