Kids and teens up to 19 years old write a simple program to measure the humidity aboard the International Space Station (ISS) and display it to astronauts, along with a personalized message, for 30 seconds! No special equipment or programming skills are needed, and all participants who follow the rules are guaranteed that their programs will run in space. Learners will also receive a certificate showing exactly where the ISS was when their program was running!

Teams of youth up to age 19 design and program a science experiment for the ISS. Each team is supervised by a teacher or mentor who submits the programs. The data measured on the ISS is downloaded and made available to the teams for analysis.
