Develop an interactive app for children that uses smart phone and tablet sensory to locate the Moon (any time of the day, even below horizon), which unlocks current lunar data (phase, distance, etc), and then presents the user options for reading a "Moon" related story, view space agency photos and videos, and/or fun facts about the Moon. The goal of this challenge is edutainment and raising awareness about lunar missions around the world.
The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) is already there! It has lots of information on the moon, temperature maps, high resolution imaging, moon UV’s albedo, and global geodetic grid.
The LRO instruments already provide 24 hrs. of global data
All initial data is placed onto the Planetary Data System (PDs) every three months, and is available to the public six months after project completion.
Nasa.gov is a wonderful source of information, it has a lot of space images, videos, children videogames. But, How many kids spent time reading it?
After school, most children likes to play videogames and or during weekends.
How many times parents are concerned that their kids spent “too much time” playing videogames and not learning anything.
MoonBie is solving that problem!
Using resources already in websites of NASA space place, LRO and PDs, MoonBie is a downloadable game that link directly to those sites.
No more effort for busy parents and weary children searching on nasa.gov, then searching for children section, etc
Children want to play! So, download MoonBie!
And by downloading MoonBie:
-Kids can immediately start playing games from NASA
-Parents will be happing downloading MoonBie for their kids
For education and entertainment
-No more suffering from “children wants to play and parents are worried”
ALL PARENTS WILL BE HAPPY ALLOWING THEIR CHILDREN PLAY OVER AND OVER because it
Will encourage Scientific curiosity of the Moon, Other Planets, Solar System, Space Exploration, etc
The new generation of scientists and engineers 2 years old and older had started
Thanks to MoonBie!
