SSTL’s Space Coding Course is a basic coding course that introduces youths to the concept of coding for autonomous free-flying robots on board the International Space Station.

The lessons are specially curated such that participants can learn the basics of how to apply their coding skills in the unique setting of space. Students will learn and apply their knowledge in a simple Hackathon! Meet fellow learners and take the first step to code in Space.

At the end of the five day course, students will be able to:  

  • Understand the basic to design a simple mission in space 
  • Understand the process / pipeline of the software design 
  • Learn basic coding 
  • Learn coding applications for space 
  • Take part in a mini Hackathon to test their learning!  

*Coding a robot in Space is a technically challenging process, but not impossible. It does requires proficiency in 4 coding languages. Students will only learn the basics of 1 coding language in this course to get them started on this exciting journey!
