PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Psyche is both the name of an asteroid orbiting the Sun between Mars and Jupiter — and the name of a NASA space mission to visit that asteroid, led by ASU. NASA has a long history of developing games to get the public excited about space exploration. Help engage the public in the excitement of NASA’s Psyche Mission by developing a fun and informative web-based game that would be interesting and enjoyable for all ages. The challenge of this project is to develop a compelling, robust, and accurate game that helps people learn while having fun.
