From Perseverance Rover’s spectacular Mars landing, to earth-observing satellites and Elon Musk’s rocket launches, there’s a lot going on in space for 2021 – and all made possible by computers and human ingenuity! In this month’s online coding club our young technologists get inspired by stellar missions and programme a space-themed quiz in Python, and reveal the impact of light pollution by looking at real world-wide data from the amazing ‘Globe at Night’ citizen science project. Get ready for Blast Off!!

Booking closes 5PM on Thursday 11th March

Due to current government restrictions, this event will take place online via video call.

Please read through the information sheet before booking a ticket for your child here.

What you will need:

You will need an internet connected device to take part in the session. We recommend a laptop, but activities should be possible to complete using a tablet – please get in touch if you want to discuss the requirements.

An appropriate adult must always be nearby during the day and will be responsible for monitoring your child’s online activity. As always, we encourage you to work with your child on their project.

For information on our terms and conditions visit here.

Science Oxford welcomes all children to our clubs. If you or your child has additional needs, please get in touch to discuss how we can best support your child to make the most of the club.

Science Oxford is committed to inclusion and we recognise that cost is sometimes a barrier. Funded places for eligible families are now available, thanks to the Austin and Hope Pilkington Trust. Families could be eligible for these places for several reasons; for example, if your child receives free school meals or is a looked-after child. To find out more and to book one of these places, please contact [email protected].
