2017-18 Astro Pi challenge is now open! This time we’re offering two missions, one of which guarantees getting your code into space. Teams of school students across Europe and even beyond can take part.
To celebrate, we’re telling you all about the astounding things you can
achieve with the Sense HAT, the sensor-laden part of the Astro Pi hardware that you can buy.
Issue 62 of The MagPi is out, and it focusses on everyone’s favourite plastic building blocks, LEGO.
From the practical to the artistic, we’ve also lined up the best new projects from across the Raspberry Pi community for you. Go check them out for some weekend inspiration!
I hope you all have an excellent week,
