Post Primary Level


Kick-off date: 18 September 2023- More information coming soon…

Suggested for: up to 19 years old

Have you ever dreamt of creating an experiment that could run in space? It’s easier than you think! All you need to do is write a computer program for our special Raspberry Pi computers, called Astro Pis, which are located on the International Space Station (ISS). In the Mission Zero challenge for beginners, you can collect colour and luminosity measurements and create your own pixel art image for the astronauts. For the more advanced Mission Space Lab challenge, there’s an exciting new activity planned for 2023/24 using the camera and sensors of an Astro Pi computer. Mission Zero will kick off on 18 September, and Mission Space Lab will begin on November 6th.

Astro Pi is run by ESA (with its ESERO network) in collaboration with the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
