ESERO UK: Astro-Pi Challenge!

Give your learners the chance to run their computer programs in space!

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

The Missions:

Mission Zero – 1 Hour – Primary & Secondary School Children (Suitable for Beginners)

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.

Mission Space Lab – 9 Months Duration

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