Zero Robotics competition

Zero Robotics is a world competition for programming space robots aboard International Space Station organized by MIT In USA and Politecnico di Torino in Europe. High school teams are invited to submit their codes aiming at solving a virtual problem by means of real satellites flying inside ISS. Up to the semifinal, competitions are played on a web server, while the final is played aboard ISS with the supervision of astronauts. In Italy 25 teams participate every year at the world championship, plus another 30 to 50 participate to the national championship.

Programming competition for space robots in a zero gravity environment on board the International Space Station, is both among Italian high schools (Italian championship) and world high schools (world championship).
