Have a Blast Learning About the Moon!

Play Selene, the free, award-winning online videogame that Science magazine and the National Science Foundation honored in 2013 as one of the top educational games or apps in the world (International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge). Learn the solar system's basic geological processes by firing away at what will quickly become a full-fledged, pockmarked moon like our own. Replicate the Moon's 4.5 billion-year history. Incorporate Selene into your classroom curriculum (ages 9 and up). Follow with our MoonGazers hands-on activities that take Selene players outside to explore the Moon and its phases from their own backyard. Empirical research shows Selene causes and measures learning. Discover and apply concepts that are standards based, then investigate the Moon.
