Send your Code to Space!

Saturday, February 6, 2021

We’re participating in the European Space Agency’s Astro Pi Challenge!  Learn to code a simple program that takes a humidity reading on the International Space Station.  Then, customize it with a personalized message for the astronauts on board.  The programs of participants aged 14 and younger will actually be run in space!  At the end, receive a certificate showing where exactly the ISS was when your program ran.

Preparation: The coding can be done in a web browser.  To participate, you will need a computer with an internet connection (not a tablet or mobile device).
Expert: Chimira Andres works for the European Space Agency.  She completed a M.Sc. in Geophysics and Planetary Science at Western University and is also the President of SEDS Canada, a not-for-profit student space organization.
