Microsoft, in partnership with NASA, Wonder Woman 1984, and Smithsonian Learning Labs, has announced a number of online educational experiences to teach students and life-long learners how to code using popular films, space exploration, and more.
The project-based lessons include five from Wonder Woman 1984 and the Smithsonian Learning Lab, and three from NASA. Museum Heist, for example, teaches participants to code using Minecraft: Education Edition. In the lesson, players explore a virtual museum and must solve various puzzles to help locate a stolen piece of art.
Computer scientist and entrepreneur Sarah Guthals created three NASA-inspired lessons to prep students for various space-faring careers. "Introduction to Python for Space Exploration" provides students with "an introduction to the types of space exploration problems that Python and data science can influence."
In another learning path, students use Python and artificial intelligence to classify different space rocks depicted in a set of photos.
