The Itkan Institute of Technology (formerly known as Marvels) program was developed by Dr. Mohamed Ebeida, a reasearch scientist at Sandia National Laboratories, in New Mexico in 2016 and the underlying teams won more than 25 trophies during this short period including winning the NM regional last year. Recently, Dr. Ebeida moved to Dallas and started a new journey with The Marvels of EPIC, and MAS, the first Muslim community robotics teams in Dallas. Whereas, since last September "two months ago", They have progressed massively in their knowledge of programming, building, 3D modeling, and marketing robots. They are looking to spread STEM to youth around the world. Their mission goes past robotics; it is about inspiring and getting ahead of the future. Additionally, they look forward to spreading their knowledge to other communities of youth.
