We wanted to design something that would be able to cater to younger audiences and encourage them to be responsible in these uncertain times.

What it does

Using the snake as a model, we created obstacles in the form of the Covid virus to demonstrate how the chances of acquiring the disease increases in certain situations.

How I built it

We first had to learn how to create a website so we each learned certain aspects of HTML and CSS. After spending a couple hours learning how to code, we decided to start making our website. At this point we had no idea what to put on it so we just started by making a blank HTML page. We then decided that we should make it interactive, and what better way to do that then to make a game. But that's when we came across the question: What game? We decided to code one of our favorite childhood games, "The Snake Game" and give it a Covid twist.

Challenges I ran into

Our biggest challenge was that none of us had much prior coding experience. In fact this was the first coding project any of us had done so learning to code was our biggest challenge. We kept coming across bugs that would slow our progress but we always overcame them.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I'm especially proud of how each member of the team contributed by learning various aspects of HTML and implementing it into our program. We worked efficiently and responsibly and each person did their share of the work. We also learned an incredible amount of HTML, in fact I'm starting to have thoughts in HTML because of how much time we spent learning it.

What I learned

I learned how to make HTML web pages and how to use basic HTML code to make interactive things such as games. I also learned how to style HTML web pages using CSS.

What's next for Covid Snake Game

I want to make our current game more complex, maybe by adding more moving objects. However, I also believe our current project is simply the first step of many in which I hope to further develop my coding skills and develop a variety of practical applications that embrace simplicity and are accessible to wider ranges of audiences.
