Our Story

Space Trek programs use custom-designed hardware to teach principles of robotics, rocketry, and atmospheric science at the iconic setting of NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. Students program robots to operate on Mars, predict and measure performance of rockets, and gather data about Earth’s high atmosphere, with guidance from experienced coaches in a challenging and fun environment.

Our team doesn’t only develop cutting-edge course content but also the hardware and software used in all our programs. From designing and manufacturing robot and rocket parts using a 3D printer and laser cutting machines, to advanced electronics needed to operate them, and writing sophisticated softwares for running our robots or long distance telemetry involved in our Near Space Investigation program, we do it all in-house.
