Our Code Club and I are about to embark on Mission Zero from Astro-Pi. We’ll do the coding on an emulator: Trinket Mission Zero, but then I’d like them to be able to see their code run on a Sense HAT, just like the astronauts have up there, on the International Space Station.

Getting the Sense Hat working took a bit of time so I’ve described the process, and put some troubleshooting tips, in another post: Sense HAT – how to get your Sense HAT working
We’re already to begin on Thursday 19th October with a crew of eight year 5 and 6 pupils.
Let’s get started!
