Puzzle 3D

Learning is child's play

 

It's not easy to explain to small children what a satellite is, how it is made and what it is used for or the International Space Station (ISS) building operations.

 

 

Games can be a way for making something as complex and unusual as an artificial satellite more familiar ot to explain the ISS assembly operations. For this reason ASI has made some three-dimensional puzzles, with a booklet that explains, for instance, the objectives for putting a satellite into orbit, the ISS utilization, their main features and offers useful references for more widenings.

 

 

 

 

 

Puzzels issued up to now:

 

  • "AGILE - The satellite discovering the deep space mysteries";
  • "COSMO-SkyMed - In space to keep an eye on the Earth";
  • "International Space Station - Around the world in 90 minutes".
