Hubble Star Cards provide teachers and students a fun and exciting way to explore the universe using imagery from the orbiting telescope. The images on the cards motivate and engage students to read while developing strategies in learning about objects in space.
The cards won a Hubble Gold Star award from NASA and IGES for innovative use of Hubble imagery in informal science education as well as an Independent Book Publishing Award (IPPY) in children’s interactive.
Game cards include 60 cards divided into general sections of planets, planetary nebulae, supernova remnants, nebulae, star clusters and galaxies. The cards include an image, a basic description, a key to the type of object, location in the sky, constellation, and distance from Earth.
