PROJECT

We worked with Discovery Cube Orange County to create content for three interactive installations that allowed children to launch customized, simulated, space station modules, satellites and rovers into virtual space using gesture-recognition technology.

OBJECTIVE

Make learning about aerospace fun, creative, and engaging for young children.

SOLUTION

Enable kids to design their own hands-on space mission. Via tablet, users designed a custom spacecraft, rover, and/or satellite and created a personalized space station. Then, they launched their spacecraft/rover/satellite into simulated space. Finally, users interacted with their outer spacecraft on a 12’x10’ motion sensitive wall.

IMPACT

Using immersive platforms, the program inspired kids to create and it engaged the next generation of innovators to explore the wonders of aerospace and science through technology.
