Moonhack 2022 Projects

6 brand new projects have been created for this year’s Moonhack.  Each project has been designed to highlight an aspect of how satellites, both natural and man made, are used in everyday life.

To help build excitement for this year’s challenge we have some posters, logos and social posts for you to use in this folder.

There are blog posts for each of the projects that shares information about the origin of the project, how it fits in with the UNs Sustainability Development Goals and provides alignment to the Australian Curriculum for teachers.

We have an amazing team of volunteers who worked on project translations help us share these projects globally.  Our projects have been translated into Arabic, Czeck, Dutch, French, Greek and Spanish.

Stop the Fires!

Create a clicker style game.  Click on each fire to put it out.  Can you put out each round of fires to save Earth?

Tagai Constellation

Join the students of Tagai College to create an animation about the Tagai Constellation.

Satellites in Space

Use the pen tool to navigate the satellite through a random group of stars back to Earth, in the quickest time possible.

What Will I Wear?

Create an animation about a satellite being launched into space to track weather, and how this is used by people on Earth.


This project, a collaboration with Dr Brad Tucker, creates a program to print data about daylight to inform sustainable use of lights.

Save the Trees

Using the multi screen with MakeCode, create a tree alarm that can detect falling trees in a rainforest.  This project can be completed with or without physical Micro:Bits.
