Mia Marcotte is a 9-year-old girl with a secret dream—to be an astronaut and fly to Mars. So when a field trip to the space center is promised for a successful participation in the school science fair, Mia is thrilled. The only problem: her attempt to build a mini-rocket in her backyard ends in a flop. But it also leads her to an extraordinary encounter—with Aizek, a curious robot who wants to learn imagination. Will Mia and her new friend be able to help each other get closer to their dreams?

Sometimes she can be found in her partner's laboratory trying to communicate with robots, though, unfortunately, none of them is as smart as Aizek.
