This project is solving the Why We Explore challenge.
The story has been written especially for the International Space Apps Challenge 2013 as one solution to the Why We Explore challenge and will be turned into an explorable story (online internet linked picture book/app/presentation). Its aim is to introduce young children (especially girls, as there an imbalance between men and women in the fields) to science, engineering and technology (STEM education) through fiction. Each part of the story links to some form of human achievement in these fields which, in the final format, will be linked in as a ‘Learn more’ section on each page of the book
