Travel to the Moon

People's Choice Nominee

Travel to the Moon received a People's Choice Nomination.

THE CHALLENGE: Book it to the Moon
Solar System

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.


My project is designed for children of 6-12 years, to get them interested in the space and the Moon. I gave them some basic knowledge about the Moon. With the help of 3D Graphics I showed them how the space ships, astronauts and the Moon surface look.

I worked on this project alone. I did not have a team.

My text in the video:

Hi, I am Igor, I am 14, I began to study 3D graphics a year ago.

I wanted to create an interactive app for children about the Moon exploration. Using my 3D models of spaceships and astronauts I tried to create the atmosfere of real presence on the Moon.
