Teaching people on how to not die!


The project I made is a website where there are a lot of dangerous situations listed. The user can click on a situation and recieve a lot of information on that situation. At the end there is also a quiz that the user can take to test their knowledge on what they learned.

Many people, including students are not taught many survival skills and are not informed on what to do in desperate situations. As a result, if they ever find themselves these situations, they don’t know how to react.

I created an all-inclusive resource where one could click on a situation that they’d like to learn about and be directed to a page that has instructions on what to do in that circumstance. For example, if one would like to learn more about poison ivy, they could click on that and they’d be given information such as why poison ivy is harmful and what to do if they come in contact with it.

After they read the information and take the quiz, they’ll be more informed on what to do if they are ever in that condition!

It was difficult to make the quiz because there was a specific problem with ids and making the output after the quiz or if all the questions were not answered. It was also difficult to design the webpage. I had to do a lot of trial and error.

I’m a junior at Stuyvesant High School. I really enjoy coding and learning new languages. The reason I’m really interested in Computer Science is because technology keeps growing and there is no limit, no time to be bored. My favorite subject in school is also Computer Science and I’m really glad that I applied for Girls Who Code because it really pushed me out of my comfort zone and showed me all the amazing opportunities out there relating to technology. I like reading, eating, watching TV, and making art (3D, painting, drawing, etc.)

This project was made by Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program students at Moodys (NYC).
