Science Week - Destination Moon
Destination Moon is the theme for Science Week this year. Coding and mathematics has played a critical role in space exploration since before we had advanced computer systems. In the early years of space exploration ‘human computers’ such as Katherine Johnson manually calculated the trajectory and flight to the moon and back. Together with other ground breaking computer scientists like Margaret Hamilton, they calculated ways to safely deliver humans to space. In fact, Margaret Hamilton, wrote the code for the Apollo mission and invented the modern concept of software that we rely on for so many things in our daily lives.
