The Mars STEM Experience


Designed and built by Orange Technical College students to provide a flexible lab space for simulation based scenarios using both practical and computer based
challenges. Players will enter a Mars habitat that has suffered a cyber security attack and will be forced to evacuate once the crew has been assembled and the escape vehicle is ready.

Orange Technical College students from advanced manufacturing, electronics, automotive, paint & body, fashion production, digital media, digital video production, and modeling and simulation worked together to fabricate a realistic habitat. In partnership with Dexterity Interactive, simulation students will create new experiences over time using computer based simulations inside the practical set. The experience designed for Otronicon includes several problems that have to be completed by 4-6 players before the clock runs out.
