Students will imagine themselves as Artemis astronauts living and working on the Lunar Gateway in the year 2024. They will combine their coding, innovation, and art skills to create a storytelling project using Tynker. Students are provided a tutorial to help guide their creative process as they complete the project.
Combine your artistic skills with coding and design a mission patch for a mission to the Moon.
Explore NASA’s exciting new efforts to reach the Moon and then Mars. Students can design their own animated mission patch, imagine their life as an Artemis astronaut on the Lunar Gateway, and more. Beginners can try step-by-step tutorials, while experienced programmers can create their own original projects with block or text coding.
