Space STEM Activities for Lunar Robotics and Artificial Intelligence


This project aims to deliver interactive experiences to youth across all Canadian provinces and territories through multiple streams: an educational and interactive website, an adaptation of the Mission Control Academy, in-class workshops and activities, virtual presentations, teacher training workshops, and camp programs. 

These hands-on learning experiences will educate youth on the use of AI-enabled robotics such as machine learning, career options in AI, and the development of robotic arm missions.
