Summer Think and Make Saturday special | Big Data – Lost in space!

Design and code your own digital skyscapes of millions of stars and use real space data to explore techniques– such as match filtering – that are employed by astronomers to identify new stars and find objects in space.

Celebrating this year’s Big Data event Tariq Rashid, author, technologist and code-club organiser, will be running free Space Adventures Code Labs at CAST.

Alongside the code labs, a creative data gathering craft workshop, including a summer-long cumulative data wall, will create an evolving picture of who we are and what makes us tick.

Free drop-in data collect and make workshop, 10am – 4pm: no need to book

To reserve a free place on the morning code lab workshop, 10.30am – 12.30pm, book here

To reserve a free place on the afternoon code lab workshop, 1.30 – 3.30pm, book here
