Science fiction on television and in movies explores the possibilities of life on other planets and other dimensions. With all the alien civilizations in the media, it’s hard to keep up. For this project, I’ve created a small, interactive show case of 4 popular alien civilizations: the Na’vi of Pandora, the Klingon species of Qo'noS, the Ewoks of the forest moon Endor, and the Time Lords of Gallifrey.
I made the model planets by painting styrofoam spheres to look like the specific world. Using a MaKey-MaKey, you can touch the planets and get basic facts about it, like the movie or show it is from, the alien races and species on the planet, and geographical facts. This way, you can be an expert about the important alien worlds and impress your friends with these (perhaps useless) facts.
