This year's project will have the teen participants build, test and operate some sort of robotic device that is space related - this year's project is still under development and the exact nature of it has not yet been determined. Past projects have focused on robotic spacecraft, such as Rosetta and New Horizons. When this years project is selected, we will update this page.

This will be a hands on class where the group will work in teams to construct a device that will be demonstrated at the Convention. Each participant will have the opportunity to experiment with their project during a special dinner hour session.

Attendance will be first-come first-served. If you are 100% sure your teen will attend convention and will want to attend this event, then you’ll need to get them on the list. Please email us directly at You will receive a manual reply to let you know your status. When space is filled, we will add the next two names to a waiting list. If space is not filled through preregistration we will accept others first-come first served at the event, until the class is full. This program is free to teens attending convention.

Special note: There will be a lot of specialized instruction so you will need to be on time!

Last year's program was a great success. Watch the video below to see the four space probes in action, 'flying' down the wires past an asteroid, Jupiter and Pluto, and snapping photos as the go by. Very impressive results!
