Zero Robotics 2018

Applications and Resources for Idaho Sites

Through a partnership with MIT and NASA, the Idaho Out-of-School Network is honored to again connect Idaho youth with an out-of-this world experience this summer (July 9 - August 10, 2018) - Zero Robotics. Zero Robotics (ZR) is a computer programming competition for middle school students. Students will learn to control satellites aboard the International Space Station this summer. Zero cost for the curriculum, training or technical support. Zero experience needed for staff or students. Zero gravity - kids will write code that will run in the International Space Station.

All you need to participate is 1) a team, 2) a mentor, and 3) access to computers and the internet. Finalists go head-to-head against teams from across the country, and astronauts referee the competition live from space!
