Introduction

Artemis is NASA's program to get humans to the Moon by 2024 and prepare for missions to Mars. Artemis astronauts will orbit the moon in the Lunar Gateway as they conduct research and prepare for lunar surface exploration.

The Tynker team is thrilled to bring you the second challenge in the series of Moon to Mars coding challenges based on NASA space missions. Just in time for World Space Week (October 4-10, 2019), this challenge is about the Artemis astronauts on the Lunar Gateway. Students can research and learn about the Artemis program, which will land the first woman and the next man on the moon.

In this lesson, students will imagine themselves as Artemis astronauts living and working on the Lunar Gateway in the year 2024. They will use their JavaScript coding, innovation, and art skills to complete the "Tell Your Lunar Gateway Story" project in the Text Code Editor. Once students finish creating their "Tell Your Lunar Gateway Story" projects, have them publish their project on Tynker for a chance to win a live video conference with a real NASA expert! The chance for your classroom to win ends at 11:59 PM PT on Sunday, October 13th, 2019. NASA and Tynker will judge and select winners.
