Wannna be besties with endangered plants, take care of and learn about them? Be a conservationist with Plant Besties <3


We were inspired by a game called VoidPets and our desire to save some of the endangered plant species in North America.

What it does:

Game that lets you be a conservationist and take care of endangered plant species

How we built it:

We built a Flask framework that has login implemented using a SQL database, and then we made resources for each of the four plants we want to initially have implemented in the game.

Technologies we used:

  • Javascript
  • SQL
  • Python
  • Flask

Challenges we ran into:

We had trouble integrating our Flask site with GitHub pages, and developing the game as a whole in 24 hours.

Accomplishments we're proud of:

We are proud of working as a team and the artwork for our website (done by Sabrina and Jasmine).

What we've learned:

We learned more about the endangered species we are trying to conserve, and we learned a bit about the process to develop a web-based game.

What's next:

Integration with Heroku, developing the cutscenes associated with the game, and putting together the game as a JS game.

Built with:

Flask, SQL, GitHub, HTML, CSS, JS, a little bit of Jinja, and Python.

Prizes we're going for:

  • Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 Instant Film Camera, Sky Blue
  • Cash prizes: $1,000 total to first place team; $500 total to second place team; $200 to third place team
  • Hydroflasks
  • Nintendo Switches
