Welcome to Illinois Robotics in Space.

IRIS is a multidisciplinary organization that gives students the opportunity to develop an innovative robotic system in a peer-based learning environment. The club fosters systems thinking through the development, manufacturing, and operation of complex, space-oriented machines. IRIS actively shares its mission with the Champaign-Urbana community in order to help inspire the next generation of STEM students.


IRIS is an organization that gives students the opportunity to design and create innovative robots for the NASA’s Lunabotics Competition. We are also very involved with the community, reaching out to local schools to encourage STEM for the younger generation. This unique experience is rewarding for both our members and the students they mentor.
