Get involved in the ultimate international space robot game. The Zero Robotics tournament turns the ISS into a gaming arena for football-sized satellites in a virtual field filled with obstacles.
The Zero Robotics tournament is open to European secondary school pupils. The competition challenges youngsters to write instructions that control football-sized satellites through a virtual field filled with obstacles. The tournament is not only about writing code – participants must solve problems, apply their maths and physics knowledge and work in teams to achieve success.
Each year finalists get to attend a winner’s event held at a European Space Agency site to see their programs run on the ISS.
The competition runs every year. Sign up through the Massachusetts Institute of Technology site by the end of September to take part.
