Sheldon Cooper Presents: Fun With Flags (later renamed Dr. Sheldon Cooper and Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler Present: Dr. Sheldon Cooper's Fun With Flags) is a YouTube/podcast show that Sheldon and Amy make to teach vexillology, the study of flags
What it does
Vexillology is the scientific study of the history, symbolism and usage of flags or, by extension, any interest in flags in general. A game is structured form of play, usually undertaken for enjoyment and sometimes used as an educational tool. This app aims to teach fun facts about flags using gamification methodology.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
A person who studies flags is a vexillologist; vexillography is the art of designing flags; one who does so is a vexillographer; an admirer of flags is a vexillophile. My aim is to engage audience in a fun learning experience and eventually turning them into vexillophile. I am trying to target a broader age group from school kids to senior citizens.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Flag of the week : FTW is like giving history of the particular flag including its origin, symbolism, design, type.
Fwag, Not a Fwag : A rapid fire game where flag cards are flashed in front of user and user has to answer it within a limited time frame.
Vexillophile : This aims to teach user the basic terminologies about flags via quizzes. User will be rewarded flags after mastering each topic.
What I learned
Learning can be fun too if one thinks differently!

More Flags, more Fun, more Awesomenessssss
