Was there a moment during this pandemic where you missed hanging out with your friends, wanted to read a book in the presence of others at a cafe or library, or just wanted to take care of a pet? It’s likely that there are others out there from kids to the elderly who have felt the same way. Social interactions and companionship are essential components for happiness, and can help us get through stressful times.
The objective of this competition is to design a programming code using Microsoft MakeCode that can provide companionship, entertainment, and lend a helping hand to people who are isolated at home during the pandemic. When you’re designing your companion, think about WHO your target audience is, and WHAT the purpose of your innovation is. Remember your program should be able to interact with you, and bonuses will be given if they can help out with daily tasks at home.
