Alexa in Space Overview

Welcome to Alexa in Space!

The National Center for Computer Science Education has partnered with Amazon Future Engineer (AFE) on the Alexa for Astronauts program. As part of this partnership, we have created this Alexa in Space unit focused on programming Amazon Alexa skills in MIT App Inventor with a space-theme. In this unit, you will explore artificial intelligence (AI) concepts by creating Alexa skills. In addition, you will explore the question of how voice AI can help with space travel.
