As a result of this course, students utilize all of their knowledge and newly learned skills to work with a team on a design project. The premise of this project is that the team has been employed by NASA, and the team needs to redesign and build a robotic arm which will pick up ground samples on the next mission to Mars.


The content is gradually guiding students through multiple phases, enabling them to create a full cycle product, from initial idea to development and implementation in the end. RAS program offers both hands-on and deep learning platform experience which makes it our most popular program offered on Stemi LAB platform.


With multiple variations of this program available, it is suitable for both middle and high school students. Additionally, due to its modular capabilities, it fits into any classroom schedule.
