Calling principal and secondary lecturers and pupils from Europe: the European Room Company is launching 5 school projects for the 2020/21 school calendar year. Astro Pi, Local climate Detectives, Mission X, Moon Camp and CanSat will each and every be launching on a focused working day in the 7 days of fourteen to eighteen September, so choose note of your favorites and get ready to choose element! 

fourteen September → The European Astro Pi Problem

Level: six to 19 a long time outdated

Find out to code though exploring place! You can conduct scientific investigations in place by composing laptop or computer applications that operate on Raspberry Pi personal computers aboard the Worldwide Room Station! Two missions are out there for starter and additional seasoned coders. This task is operate in collaboration with the Raspberry Pi Foundation. 

fifteen September → Mission X: Train like an astronaut

Level: 8 to twelve a long time outdated
Train like an astronaut by finishing bodily exercises and scientific investigations produced by scientists and astronaut trainers. Gain details to assistance mascots Luna and Leo stroll to the Moon. isles/missionx 

sixteen September → Moon Camp Problem

Level: six to 19 a long time outdated
Curious to know what it would be like to stay on the Moon? Find out additional about the discrepancies amongst the Earth and our closest neighbour by finishing scientific experiments.

Level: 8 to fifteen a long time outdated
In this task you will embrace the position of Local climate Detectives though learning about Earth’s setting. You will identify a nearby local climate dilemma, examine it by working with actual satellite images or your own floor measurements, and ultimately propose steps to assistance lessen or keep track of the dilemma.

eighteen September → CanSat – which includes CADSat (new!)

Level: eleven to 19 a long time old 
Think about, establish, test and start your really own mini satellite fitting the measurement of a soda can! Foster your technological know-how and programming techniques by using up this problem. You and your staff can get jointly to plan their scientific mission, using into account your CanSat will be launched possibly from a rocket, a drone, airplane or air balloon up to 1 kilometre higher, and demands to carry out a mission in the course of the start and descent to Earth. The principal mission will be to measure temperature and strain. The secondary mission is up to your creativity!
