The current categories I’m working with for HubbleGum Cards are:
- Computers and Communication
- Earth Sciences
- Education (specifically Science Education)
- Engineering and Invention
- Exploring and Adventuring
I have no doubt that these will be refined (and probably expanded) over time, but I had to start somewhere!
Obviously we can think of instances that crossover to different categories. However, whatever is featured in a category (or categories) has to play a major role in that category.
Isaac Newton is the first example I came across that just had too many impacts in too many fields to only sit in one category. And while it could be argued that the Hubble Space Telescope is a marvel of Engineering and Invention, it is primarily known for contributions to Astronomy.
Like pretty much everything on HubbleGum Cards, this is open to discussion. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
