The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum has launched a free iPad app, The JFK Challenge that brings American history to life for kids ages 8-12. The Library’s first-ever app release, The JFK Challenge turns players into NASA and Peace Corps trainees ready to accept President Kennedy's charge to accomplish great things and make a difference in the world. As virtual astronauts, they try on a spacesuit, steer the spacecraft, and explore the Moon's surface while learning about NASA, space travel, and the first moon walk. Back on Earth, the Peace Corps mission takes young volunteers on a trip to 1961 in Colombia, where they learn about the local culture and use these skills and knowledge to navigate mazes and build pathways for clean drinking water and houses.
