Run Your Code in Space!

Saturday, March 16, 2024

We’re participating in the European Space Agency’s 2023-24 Astro Pi Challenge! In this session, we will learn to code a program that takes a colour and luminosity reading on the International Space Station (ISS), and use it to make a customized message for the astronauts on board! Our programs will be run in actual space! At the end of the challenge, we will receive a certificate showing where the ISS was when the program ran.



Ages 7-11: 8 am PT • 9 am MT • 10 am CT • 11 am ET • 12 pm AT
Ages 11-16: 10 am PT • 11 am MT • 12 pm CT • 1 pm ET • 2 pm AT
