ISS Mimic EDU Goals

The purpose of the ISS Mimic project is to provide a daily, tangible connection to human space exploration to those otherwise disconnected.  This is achieved by leveraging the public telemetry stream from ISS to actuate motors, LEDs, and data screens on a physical, scale model of ISS.  The ISS Mimic STEM Engagements goals include a primary goal and two learning goals. The primary goal of the project is leveraging ISS excitement to enable students to build space-exploration-relevant skills and envision themselves as capable to take on STEM/space careers. The ISS Mimic educational learning goals are: (a) improved technological and critical 21st-century skills (communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills), and (b) increased engagement in and excitement about STEM content and careers, especially in technology.
