Children all over the world are curious. These days they are asking questions like 'why is the corona virus called corona virus'? And where does it come from? What is social distancing? At the same time children all over the world love coloring books.
We have created 'Colorona Book' - the first educational coloring book about the corona crisis.
We are a team of 4 people from Germany.
Last Sunday Markus was hanging out with his 3 children. Once again they were asking to print coloring templates from the web. That was the moment when Markus had the idea to create a coloring book especially about the corona crisis.
Mariel joined immediately for digitizing the art work. Birger as a teacher created the educational concept. And Christian joined with expertise in Marketing und Product Management. Markus started coding the website.
With colorona-book we provide parents and their children with a self-print coloring book to have fun and learn at the same time.
Go to www.colorona-book.org to get your free copy today and help spread the word.
We are also looking for volunteers to tranlate the content into more languages.
Have fun and stay healthy!

Challenges I ran into

To really get it done as a team in the timebox of a hackathon
What I learned
