2023 Summer

In the summer of 2023, the Zero Robotics ISS Final featured astronaut Dr. Warren Hoburg (Woody) as the game referee aboard the International Space Station. Engaging 46 teams and 600 middle school students nationwide, participants programmed to virtually collect lunar dust samples for analysis as part of the Artemis Engineering Team. Notably, Storming Robots Team Quark Charm Jr, alongside its alliance teams, achieved the remarkable feat of clinching FIRST Place in the 2023 ISS Final held in early August 2023.

We have 20 members. Our alliance teams consist of teams from two teams from west coast, and one team from Puerto Rico. Event took place on August 3rd. We all watch our work running in the Satellite up on the International Space Station with an Astronaut as the referree. The event viewing is truly inspirational.
