This week the Foundation started shipping kits to schools for the big
weather station project – great news for the 1000 schools around the world who have been in eager anticipation. This announcement comes with the launch of a number of learning resources related to weather (some require the kit, some do not) which you can find on the weather station page.
We are in the final week of the
Astro Pi coding challenges – entries need to be submitted by noon on 31 March. The two challenges are Sonic Pi music and a Sense HAT MP3 player – great activities open to all under-18s in the UK.
