Currently, the State Department's interactive map does not encourage active learning for students. This is due to the current map not actively engaging students in a way that promotes learning. By gamifying this map, students will get a better understanding of U.S. Diplomacy and it's effect on their everyday lives.

What it does

Allows for students to both explore an interactive map and learn interesting diplomacy facts about several states, while also be challenged in a quiz about U.S. Diplomacy

How we built it

We used the Google Charts with HTML and CSS languages for creating the maps and interface. The Sketch program was used for graphics

Challenges we ran into

Understanding how to have a good UX with the data given. Understanding the Google Charts API and applying it to the HTML and CSS languages

Accomplishments that we're proud of

As a group we are able to utilize everyone's talents and work as a team. Because of this, we created a final product that we are proud of.

What we learned

We learned how to best communicate as a team when learning front-end development together

What's next for Eggcelent Eggducation
