ZERO Robotics team heading to MIT

Congratulations to the Forest Park ZERO Robotics team for their outstanding accomplishments this year. They have advanced to the finals which will be held at MIT in January.

235- ZERO Waterbears web picThe students on the “Waterbears” Zero Robotics team are Syed, Brandon, Brady, Jack, and Hamza . They are coached by Mrs. Rachelle Carlson.

The Forest Park Zero Robotics Team, is a small group of students passionate about computer science. The members of the Waterbears have several years of programming experience through the Information Technology program at Forest Park.Brady, Hamza and Syed also compete in VEX Robotics on VRC team 4303X.

Zero Robotics is a robotics programming competition where the robots are SPHERES (Synchronized Position Hold Engage and Reorient Experimental Satellites) inside the International Space Station. The competition starts online where teams program the SPHERES to solve an annual challenge. After several phases of virtual competition in a simulation environment that mimics the real SPHERES, finalists are selected to compete in a live championship aboard the ISS. An astronaut will conduct the championship competition in microgravity with a live broadcast!

Good luck Waterbears! We know you will represent Forest Park admirably at the MIT competition!
