The purpose of K-RPC is to foster next generations of scientists by making younger generations, mainly school students, more accessible to the space. Also, by creating programs to control the space robots, we will improve science, technology, engineering and math knowledge, and nurture world-leading engineers. In K-RPC, expansion of international exchange will be accomplished through intercourses of participants with other countries.
