Meet and Code 2017

During the EU Meet and Code 2017 event, Astronomy and Space Science Club (a NGO organization) from Oradea City, Romania, organized two educational activities: 'Astronaut for a day' and 'Mars Exploration Rover'.
Location: The Children's Educational Center in Oradea, Romania
Time: October 18-th and 21-st, 2017.


'During one of the 30 coding events in Romania, some participants even explored Mars! Organizers of the Mars Exploration Rover event from the Astronomy and Space Science Club in Oradea, showed children the images transmitted by satellites and later moved on to the presentation of a LEGO Mindstorms robot kit. It was an introduction of an exciting task: to design, construct and program their own rovers and explore Mars. The participants built 3D models of the Lego Space Challenge EV3 and learned how to code NXT 2.00 rover for specific tasks. The results were really impressive!'

History changed on October 4, 1957, when the Soviet Union successfully launched Sputnik I. The world's first artificial satellite was about the size of a ball (58 cm. in diameter), weighed only 83.6 kg. and took about 98 minutes to orbit the Earth on its elliptical path.
The people's lives can be change through education, hard work and perseverance. Students from 5A grades watched "October Sky", an amazing movie about these.
