Inspiration

As students, we know how it feels to sit through hour long video lessons. It can get boring, and at times, mentally tiring. That's why we made GeoPop, to combine our love for geography and fun into something applicable and interesting!

What it does

GeoPop is a capitals of the world quiz game Chrome extension. It integrates APIs to make it more dynamic, providing information about the current temperature of the capital, and its geographical location in an image. Keep track of your score, and learn about the capitals that you got wrong as well.

How we built it

We used a combination of JavaScript and HTML/CSS files to produce a interactive and usable Chrome extension. We also fetched various APIs to give GeoPop! a more interactive and dimensional feel.

Challenges we ran into

We started with a different idea, but the challenge of finding usable APIs made us switch directions a little bit, but it turned out fine! This is also our first time integrating APIs using JavaScript, so we ran into some issues. Online resources and debugging helped overcome those issues.

Accomplishments that we're proud of and what we learned

Successfully using multiple APIs and applying it to a Chrome extension. Also, using JavaScript to make it all happen. This is one of our teammate's first hackathon!

What's next for Team Binomial (Team 25) - GeoPop!

Publishing our extension and expanding is the very first one on our list. Also, by expanding it to other browsers, we can grow our user base.
