Makes Me Think
Feedback from the Judges:
Though space has always interested me, I too have a lack of knowledge when it comes to things outside of our home planet. I could see this site being used by students all around the world out of curiosity, and for school projects they might be doing about space. A great addition to this site would be a page showing all the planets at once so kids can get an idea of the distance between the planets and their size differences. Over all an amazing project! Great work!
This is an excellent concept and I absolutely love the idea of interactively teaching people more about the planets. I would recommend adding more graphics which would elevate the app and make it even more fun to use. Perhaps think about adding graphics for each planet and category. I think you are absolutely correct in that many people don't know enough about the planets and with an app like this, it will allow you to learn about the areas that you choose. This would be a great interactive tool for in the classroom, starting to learn from an early age. Overall, fun and unique concept and topic!
I really liked the idea of contributing to increase the level of general knowledge around space. It's interesting, innovative, and the app helps to that end. The pitch is described effectively, and I think anyone can understand the message, which is good. The developed code reveals a lot of effort and I think it is well organized, although the lines referring to events could be framed in functions. Trying to bring people to the knowledge around space is a challenge that this app will certainly help to overcome, but it will not be an easy challenge. The aesthetic/artistic scope, as well as the presentation of the process, the design involved, are at an interesting level and I hope they continue to develop efforts in this theme and in this type of projects. I really liked it!
