About us

We are the Micro:la Foundation, operating in Lanškroun. Enthusiasts who have been consistently supporting technical education for children and youth.

Thanks to a sponsorship donation from Kyocera AVX, in 2023, four models of varying technical complexity were created for those interested in building the Mars rover Curiosity. The official presentation took place on May 19, 2023, in Lanškroun, during the traditional Microtela children and youth competition.

The real rover Curiosity has been exploring Mars since 2012. Kyocera AVX Lanškroun developed and supplied key components for it. Specific individuals, with unique knowledge and experience, are responsible for creating unique products.

The Czech footprint is on Mars, coming from Lanškroun!

On these pages, you can choose the most suitable model for you, download the relevant data for printing and assembly, or participate in the competition, according to the specified conditions. We look forward to your great projects and photos, and we will be happy to share them.


The most complex model is based on the large NASA model, scaled up to 200% to allow for the installation of stepper motors and servos for wheel propulsion, the drilling arm (MAHLI), and the creation of a rotating and tilting camera (ChemCam). The feasibility model is constructed using an Arduino Nano Every. This project does not include the installation of a control unit, which is left to the choice of the modeler. Power is supplied by two Li-ion 18650 cells and 5V voltage stabilizers. This model is featured in our promotional video.


An enlarged NASA model at 107% with a Micro:bit, laser, rotating ChemCam camera, and medium wheel propulsion. Power is supplied by two Li-ion 16340 cells and voltage stabilizers at 3.3V and 5V. (This model is designed for robotics clubs, teaching robotics, Micro:bit programming, and other robotics skills. Before embarking on the ADVANCED build, we recommend assembling this model.

Model EASY

An enlarged SMALL model at 150% with a Micro:bit and a functional laser. The power source is 2x AAA batteries. The laser power is limited to prevent eye damage. It includes a standard case for powering the Micro:bit. (Modifications have been made to the .STL files.


The original small NASA model without electronics (Suitable for 3D printing education). Whether you're a fan looking to inspire children or students, or you want to try your hand at 3D printing, this is the simplest way to get started.
