How it works?

  • Upon registration, participants receive unique codes from STEM & Space.

  • The ISS then captures and delivers the requested pictures within a few days.
  • ¬†This initiative offers an enjoyable learning experience that enhances understanding of Earth’s geography, weather patterns, and environmental dynamics.
