“Your Code in Space” workshops
Monday 23rd October 2017 12pm-4pm
at The Hive Enterprise Centre, Southend, SS2 6EX

Teams aged 14yrs and under are guaranteed to have their code run in space !!





The Python code which will be run on the code is here :

Teams code the Raspberry Pi computers and sensors on the International Space Station using beginner Python coding (no experience of Python necessary, suitable for ages 7yrs+).

Bring a friend if you can or form a team on the day.
Bring a charged laptops if you can, although you may be able to use another team member’s if you don’t have one. (Tablets/smartphones will also be helpful.)

Parents must accompany children and we are looking for volunteers to help mentor.
Adults are welcome to attend and observe and/or take part in the coding – but can’t have their code run in space or enter the competition.


Also, teams 19yrs and under can enter a competition to run a space science experiment which is eligible for a Bronze Crest Award. (Experience of Python programming needed on the team.)

Facilities and room hire sponsored by The Hive Enterprise Centre and Enterprise4Good as part of Southend #TechCityonSea.
