Getting Started with Astro Pi
Astro Pi is the name of a small computer developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, in collaboration with the UK Space Agency and the European Space Agency (ESA).
There are two very special Astro Pi’s. Their names are Ed and Izzy, and they have been qualified for spaceflight. They are now onboard the International Space Station (ISS) for students to use.
With this set of activities students assemble a Raspberry Pi and learn the essential coding language (Python) that they need to program the Astro Pi. By doing so, they will get the chance to have their own code and scientific experiment run on the ISS.
