Project Description

ASU, as the lead of the Psyche mission, challenged capstone teams to develop a mobile app to engage the public in the mission in a way that was fun and interactive. To achieve this goal, the Psyche mission team invited six interdisciplinary teams of senior capstone students to compete in the development of a mobile experience (game, interactive, AR, etc.) for Psyche.
