Now Accepting Zero Robotics Applications

 Go Somewhere Different This Summer! 
Zero Robotics is Now Accepting 2019 Applications in Florida.

Zero Configuration and Zero Gravity = Infinite Fun Aboard the International Space Station!

Join Zero Robotics - a computer programming and coding competition that takes place inside the International Space Station! Led by MIT, you can apply today to run the five-week summer program at locations across Florida.  The competition starts online and ends live on the ISS where astronauts referee the final competition -in real time- running student-developed code on satellites called SPHERES!   We link you and your students directly into the Space Station for the finals!  

ZR is for students in Middle School (Rising 6th to 9th Grade). The 5-week summer program will run in Florida from July 8, 2019 to August 9th, and it teaches the basics of coding and space exploration.  We offer free training and free curriculum for educators.

Registration Form is Live! -  Form a team and start writing code for the International Space Station!  Teams will be accepted on a rolling basis, but this form must be completed no later than May 31st, 2019 - https://forms.gle/qUJUs4vgMRNG77F27 (Florida application only)
