The European Astro-Pi Challenge!

Giving young people the chance to run their computer programs in space

The European Astro Pi Challenge offers young people the amazing opportunity to conduct scientific investigations in space by writing computer programs that run on Raspberry Pi computers aboard the International Space Station (ISS).

There are two exciting missions to choose from:

Mission Zero

Mission Zero offers young people the chance to have their code run in space! Write a simple program to take a reading from the colour and luminosity sensor on an Astro Pi computer on board the International Space Station, and use it to set the background colour in a personalised image for the astronauts to see as they go about their daily tasks.

(Age 14 and under) – 1 hour to complete

Mission Space Lab

Mission Space Lab offers teams of young people the chance to have their scientific experiments run on board the International Space Station! 

(Age 19 and under) – 9 month duration
