What is the Kibo Robot Programming Challenge?

The Kibo Robot Programming Challenge (KRPC) is an educational program hosted by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) in cooperation with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). During this challenge, students will use computer programming skills to control free-flying robots (Astrobee and Int-Ball) to solve problems aboard the International Space Station (ISS).

Participants will have the chance to learn cutting-edge methodologies and to hone their skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) through this program. It is hoped that, by getting the opportunity to collaborate alongside professional scientists and engineers, students will be inspired to develop educational and professional goals that they only dreamed of before! 

Things You Will Learn from the Kibo Robot Programming Challenge

Programming Skills:

1. Improve your coding abilities through hands-on robotics programming.

2. Robotics Knowledge: Learn the basics of robotics and automation with Astrobee.

3. Critical Thinking: Enhance problem-solving, logical reasoning, and analytical skills.

4. Project Management: Gain skills in planning, executing, and managing projects efficiently.

5. Teamwork: Develop collaboration and communication skills within a team setting.

6. Research Techniques: Advance your ability to research and learn new technologies independently.

7. Problem-Solving Confidence: Build resilience and confidence in

tackling complex challenges.

8. Professional Exposure: Gain insights from interactions with experts from JAXA and NASA.

9. Global Perspective: Experience cultural exchange and global competitiveness.
