The Challenge | On the Shoulders of Giants

Create a game using images from the Hubble Space Telescope as integral components!


A game


Urania was, in Greek mythology, the muse of Astronomy, mathematics, memorys, surrealism and Astrology. Inspired by the legend of this Muse and the stunning images of the Hubble telescope provided for this challenge, we seek to bring young people and children closer to the history of international space exploration, as well as to help those who want to find a way of life in science to realize that contact with science is magical, grandiose, charming and above all, possible, including for minorities historically excluded from academic and scientific societies.
Through brief works and interactive mini-games that tell the story of American space exploration, the aim is to make the young audience believe in their own talent and dedication and understand that history is only done when you do not give up on the first difficulties.
In addition, the historical detail contained in the game research process, coupled with the Hubble telescope images present throughout the game, do the job of showing alternative realities and awakening creativity, which is a way to include socially and awaken for new alternatives of life, as scientific dissemination, anywhere in the world, changes the future of education and science across the globe.
