About the space code
Programming + maths + the space = The Space Code!
"Leia och björndjuren crack the space code" is composed of an adventure that takes place in space. It has 5 chapters which include programming and mathematics tasks for the students to solve and some questions about the space. The students will tag along the tardigrades Obi, Wan, and Zen. They will travel with the Swedish satellite Mats and will need to save the satellite from colliding with junks that are found in space. They will also receive help from their friend Leia and complete their journey towards Mars.
The Space Code is an interdisciplinary teaching material for Grades 4-6 produced by Kodcentrum, Mattecentrum, and the Swedish National Space Agency. You can find the story and the tasks in Kodboken. You can also download the student and teacher guides as printable PDFs.
