Description

SEND YOUR CODE INTO SPACE WITH KCJ!


Kids Code Jeunesse and Robertson Library are bringing Astro Pi to your community! Astro Pi is an annual science and coding challenge that invites young, curious minds to create and submit a coding project that will run on the International Space Station (ISS). Any student under the age of 14 can submit a project for Mission Zero, even if they’re first time coders! It’s all about bringing Canadians together to celebrate code—and space!


Bring along a friend! You need to submit the project in teams of two to four.


What's the project like?

The projects submitted by students aged 14 and under will contribute to the daily routine aboard the ISS by displaying a personal message or image on the Astro Pi, or by measuring the ambient air temperature. Each team will receive a certificate stating the date and time their code was executed on the ISS!





Did you know a Canadian astronaut is aboard the ISS as we speak? David Saint-Jacques, the most recent Canadian Space Agency astronaut to be sent into space, is an official ambassador for the Astro Pi challenge, along with ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst. That’s why we’ve partnered with the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) to make sure Canadian students have a chance to join in on the fun and help celebrate David’s mission.


Mission Zero is brought to you by the European Space Agency in collaboration with the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
