This teacher resource, part of the AstroPi project with UK Space Agency and Raspberry Pi Foundation, investigates sunlight and shadows in a space context. It is suitable for children in primary school.
The sequence of activities is linked to other resources in the eLibrary, starting from basic ideas about light and progressing through to discussion of lunar eclipses.
The guide also contains challenges as part of the AstroPi schools competition. Children are asked to think of ways to use the Raspberry Pi computer and a specially-developed sensor suite to experiment in space. No programming expertise is required.
The challenges may, with additional development, form part of a CREST Award. This resource supports the Astro-Pi competition
