Introduction

Help teens learn how to create astronomical images of star-forming regions, supernovas, galaxies, black holes, and so much more – by using data from NASA’s telescopes.

Middle and high school-age participants with no prior coding experience can learn how to use computers to create astronomical images and understand astronomical data. Participants learn basic coding starting with familiar objects and simple concepts such as shape and color, graduating to astronomical objects. Following a scaffolded set of activities, participants can experience real world application of science, technology, and even art.
