Take the JFK Challenge – fly to the moon or help people around the world! This immersive app from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library transports kids back in time to train for the Apollo 11 mission where they try on a space suit, steer a spacecraft, and land a crew safely on the moon. As Peace Corp volunteers, players travel to a village in Colombia to build hospitals, dig waterways for clean drinking water, and get to know the local culture. The app features fun, kid-friendly animation combined with primary sources from the JFK Library’s archives.
• Fully integrated iPad features and touch-screen interactivity
• Personalized experience lets kids take their picture and appear in the game!
• More than 10 games and activities
• Multilayered, deeply engaging interface

A great game but a little short.
Good, but short.
JFK challenge was fun, until I finished both races and got bored. 🙁
