Light can take tens of thousands of years to get from the fusion core of a star to its surface. Can you do better? Steer the photon through the maze, collect letters, and build a phrase to help you escape. The game includes twenty seven different mazes corresponding to stars ranging from red dwarfs to blue supergiants!
For teachers: Star Maze can be used as an educational game to supplement classroom discussions on the sun, stars, and astronomy. The hint phrases borrow from both the Benchmarks For Science Literacy and NASA SMD's Heliophysics Concept Map. Development was supported through grants by the National Science Foundation.
