The ‘If I Had a Satellite’ spot honors the first female astronaut Valentina Vladimirovna Tereshkova and is created in collaboration with LOBO, a renowned international creative animation, and design studio

The endeavor to uncover new worlds and push the boundaries of scientific and technological capabilities is inherent in many. For children and their unbridled imagination, exploration is all the more vital to their spirit. To further fuel this curiosity, BYJU’S FutureSchool is offering an out-of-this-world learning adventure with its Code a Satellite program.

This program will give young space enthusiasts access to a real satellite designed and built by aerospace engineers.

To inspire students to explore its space-themed coding program, BYJU’S FutureSchool has created an exciting digital ad titled “If I Had a Satellite” that honors the first female astronaut Valentina Vladimirovna Tereshkova and captures the essence of a childlike curiosity with the endless possibilities of the universe. 

While there is a pertinent gender imbalance in STEM fields, this digital film’s focus on a young female protagonist is a small step towards bridging this gap. The audio accompaniment, also performed by a female artist, was chosen with care to resonate with and inspire young women to push STEM exploration to new heights.

“This journey began with the intention to create something memorable that would resonate with kids and parents”, said Michael Zulawinski, Global Creative Director of BYJU’S FutureSchool. He added, “We’re thrilled to have found incredible partners in both LOBO and ‘Little Monarch’ who have helped bring our vision to life. Our hope with this ad is to build excitement and foster curiosity for young adventurers who can now explore the universe from the comfort of home.” 

The Code a Satellite Program will allow young coding enthusiasts to access 20+ hours of fascinating applied science. ‘Mission Control Access’, a virtual dashboard, will track all the missions that the kids go through. The young coders will embark on a series of highly interactive space missions with satellite AYANA — the best part, they can do it from the comfort of home. 

Before beaming aboard the Code a Satellite Program, all students must hone their coding skills by signing up for 144 Coding classes and completing 124 of them with BYJU’S FutureSchool to equip them with the necessary skills to access AYANA’s sophisticated onboard computer.

LOBO Director Aron Aguiar shared his thoughts on the digital spot saying, “BYJU’S FutureSchool’s campaign goals and young audience gave LOBO room to push creative boundaries with heartfelt, wondrous animation. We’re incredibly proud of the end result and can’t wait to see it out in the world (and beyond!).”

BYJU’S FutureSchool Code a Satellite Program is about more than just teaching kids to code. It’s about teaching them to expand their horizons.
