ZERO ROBOTICS 2017
JUNE 13 - JULY 20
The Zero Robotics Middle School Summer Program is an innovative and inspiring program for incoming 6th through 9th grade students that is truly out of this world! The five-week program that takes place on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 AM - 2PM.
The STEM curriculum introduces students to computer programming, robotics, and space engineering, and provides hands-on experience programming SPHERES (Synchronized, Position, Hold, Engage, Reorient, Experimental Satellites). The program culminates in a tournament where winning teams’ SPHERES compete aboard the International Space Station (ISS). Middle school participants will get to see the SPHERES operate in space via a live feed from the ISS while NASA astronauts provide real-time commentary.
