As a child, I had always been fascinated by the universe, solar system and planets which is why I chose to build this skill for children.
What it does
Space Trivia is to gain knowledge about Universe, galaxies and much more in a fun and interactive manner. The children play quiz and level up when they give the answer correctly.
How I built it
I build the app using Node.js and uploaded the code to AWS-Lambda function. I have also used AWS-DynamoDB to store the user level and stage they are at.
Challenges I ran into
It was a challenge for me to know how to make an interactive skill in which the responses go in a to and fro motion.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I'm glad that I successfully published this application on my first try itself. This will help kids greatly to learn new things in a fun way and hence boosting their confidence, nurturing them.
What I learned
I learned how to integrate DynamoDB into my Alexa skill, making an interactive voice-based application.
What's next for Space Trivia
I am going to add music and sounds in the application to make the user experience even better and more friendly to encourage the children to play with it more.
Along with it I'll also increase the number of questions in the database.
