Astro Pi computers are based on the ISS and can take readings from their colour and luminosity sensors. This data can be used to create images on the background – and this year’s theme is “flora and fauna”, to help remind the ISS astronauts of home.

The challenge is open to all ability levels, from beginners upwards, so is perfectly suited to primary schools pupils and beyond. It is possible to complete the challenge within a one-hour session, and you don’t need any special software or hardware to take part as it can be done in a web browser.

To register to take part, or to read more about this “out of this world” opportunity, visit this link: Mission Zero | Free beginners space program open to all (astro-pi.org) where you can also find examples of last year’s challenge images.
