The inspiration for this project came from the many cases of Covid and concern about how rapidly it is spreading throughout the world and affecting education, health, and social activities for many. Learning about the symptoms and how to diagnose it gave us the motivation and inspiration to make a game that would allow people to be diagnosed with Covid.
What it does
Our project creates awareness about the symptoms of Covid-19 and how they can affect a human being. These various symptoms can be recognized at an early stage which can save many lives and lots of spreading of the virus. It goes through a series of questions and allows people to pinpoint their symptoms and how they may be feeling.
How we built it
We built this project using Python on repl.it and used if statements to test the symptoms. We built the app using Java Blocks on MIT app Inventor. Through using teamwork and unique ideas, we explored out-of-the-box methods to increase efficiency and ensure accuracy to the greatest possible length.
Challenges we ran into
Some challenges we ran into included figuring out what conditions we had to make, making sure there were no error possibilities, and ensuring there were no repetitions in symptoms throughout the program. Since using blocks is different from writing code, lots of freedom was compromised and I had to use specific blocks.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Some accomplishments we are proud of include making a program that spreads awareness of Covid-19 and an app that can be easily accessible by people throughout. We're also proud of completing a program in 2 days as well as using teamwork to provide as many details and elaboration into the code as necessary.
What we learned
We all learned how to work in a team and how to manipulate different code to make a program that could help everyone. We also learned how to use our time wisely ad multitask as we learned and applied the things covered in the workshops.
What's next for Test of the Virus
We plan to make the game more accurate and detailed and develop it enough to make it an actual app on the store for people to download and use. It will have more questions that pertain to more symptoms as more information about covid-19 comes into hand and is researched.
