Project Description

Our team was one of six teams developing an interactive app in a capstone competition for the NASA Psyche mission.  The goal of the app was to engage the public with the mission in an exciting way that helps to create a connection. Our team came up with an idea of a game where the player starts with a basic spacecraft flying in space, collecting coins and dodging obstacles to reach Psyche asteroid by upgrading the spacecraft using the coins collected from each attempt.
