Here at Kahoot!, we love inspiring learners to follow their curiosity, think big and reach for the stars both in the classroom and beyond. This is why we’re so excited to announce the launch of the Callisto: Space Innovation Tour, a free, interactive virtual tour from Amazon Future Engineer where students can explore the experimental technology heading to the Moon as a part of NASA’s Artemis I mission.
Artemis I is the first flight test of the Space Launch System rocket that will carry the Orion spacecraft and experimental technology, called Callisto®, to space during upcoming launch, currently slated for November 2022. The Callisto technology, developed by Lockheed Martin, includes the Amazon Alexa voice AI and Webex by Cisco’s video communication tools. During Artemis I, engineers will test these technologies with the goal to potentially make space travel easier for astronauts in the future.
In this virtual tour on Kahoot! Academy, Amazon Future Engineer—a childhood-to-career computer science education program—is inviting explorers around the world to take STEM learning to the next level with a behind-the-scenes tour from NASA’s Johnson Space Center. Students will learn more about how technologies such as voice artificial intelligence—powered by a special version of Amazon’s Alexa—and two-way video communication will be tested as a part of NASA’s Artemis I mission to potentially revolutionize deep space travel.
Learn more about what it’s like to be an astronaut, and meet the engineers working on solutions to some of their key challenges.
