Workshop Certification Camp Skill Building Summer Program


SSTL’s Space Coding Course is Singapore’s premiere coding course that teaches youths how to code autonomous free-flying robots onboard the International Space Station.

The lessons are specially curated such that participants can learn how to apply their coding skills in the unique setting of space during the Hackathon on the last day and in future projects. Attractive prizes will be awarded to the best team for the Hackathon.

Space Coding Course aims to enthuse and teach from different socioeconomic backgrounds the basics of Java in the context of programming free-flying robots onboard a space station. It will be a platform of exposure to the possibilities of how coding can improve space missions and will position Singapore to capture future benefits in mission requirements requiring more digital skills.
