Intergalactic Education Fall 2017 Newsletter
Nov 15, 2017
Dear Friends, Educators,
Space World™ expanded
its horizons this fall to include three new educational modules and one new
mini game: Space Debris Blaster.
Education’s work presenting Space World™ in the classroom continued in Maryland
schools. Intergalactic Education recently reached an agreement with Argyle
Middle School in Maryland to provide the Space World™ educational platform to
them in 2018 for additional use after a successful pilot over the summer and
this fall. This partnership is thanks to the positive experience students had
playing the game within the Montgomery County’s Excel Beyond the Bell program.
President Justin Park
visited Piccowaxen Middle School in Charles County to
present Space World™ on their career day. He was able to work with their IT
specialists to make the platform available to students as part of career day
activities. Participating students competed among each other to be the first to
successfully launch a rocket, reach the moon, and complete a research and
development contract for ManSat LLC within the game.
Students reacted positively to the educational game; many students even
indicated in the school’s career day survey that they would be interested in a
career with aerospace, coding, or design.
Education completed the I-Corps Program at The George Washington University in
Washington, DC. The program taught valuable knowledge for commercializing
innovative products. I
Corps Program benefits include
invaluable mentorship, networking opportunities, and funding connections. GW is
now one more university where Intergalactic Education has inroads.
President Park joined
a team to compete in a “hackathon” at the Indie Galactic Space Jam in Orlando,
FL. He used the opportunity to build a 3D Solar System Jigsaw Puzzle game for
the Oculus VR headset. The team showed their skills and earned second place in
the competition, winning $1,000 from Space Florida, one of the sponsors of the
event. The competition itself took place at Universal Studios in the Digital
Animations & Visual Effects School.
The Space World™ team
has a busy winter ahead testing in schools, designing additional game features,
participating in space and business competitions, and pitching to investors.
