Space can be a mysterious place and daunting for kids to learn about. In this exhibit, kids will learn about space in an environment that is fun and engaging. The idea behind this space was to make big seem smaller by bringing the planets to them in a new and exciting way.
The spaceship game is used to try to engage the kids more by letting them customize and build a spaceship or protect the Earth in the Comet Crash game. Planet photos look foreign and different. The solution was to create planet illustrations to help show what they look like without using realistic photos. As the children walk around the museum, they learn more about the planets and see the relationship in size between the planets in our solar system.
