  • The European Astro Pi Challenge is an ESA Education project

  • run in collaboration with the Raspberry Pi foundation

  • students and young people can conduct scientific investigation in space

  • by writing computer programs that will be run on the Astro Pi computers

  • There are two missions that you can apply for

  • One is called Mission Zero

  • and is open for students and young people

  • up to 14 years old

  • and to participate you don't need any programming experience!

  • are guaranteed to have their programs run on the International Space Station in space

  • Then we have a second mission called Mission Space Lab

  • and this one is recommended students ages 12 to 19

  • Izzy here, will be looking at Earth from a window

  • so she will help you investigate our beautiful planet Earth

  • With Life in Space

  • Ed here, will focus on investigating what's going on in space

  • where are you guys going?

  • the best experiments will be deployed

  • and teams will have the opportunity to analyse a report of their results

  • the 10 best reports will be selected

  • and those teams will win an exclusive prize

  • you better come back here too
