MoonSticks

About the Team

We are four friends, and we are very passionate about science, robotics and space.

  • Inbar - 4th grade Israel's Math Kangaroo winner, can't stop talking about computer games.
  • Almog - Youngest person to get to final stage of International Computer Olympics in Israel, An aspiring animator and programmer.
  • Stav - SpaceIL moon challenge winner, an extremely talented pianist.
  • Noam - Studying for BSc in CS, Israel's Karate champion.

One of our shared hobbies is creating animations. So we decided to combine our talents to create an animated moon tale.

We know that in our video our avatars don't use spacesuits when they are on the moon, that's because stick figures don't really need air.

Also - captions for the movie are available directly on youtube, just use the CC/subtitles button.
