Congratulations to the Zero Robotics team, which is currently in second place out of 100 teams in a NASA competition to build sphere satellites that accomplish various tasks. The team has formed an alliance with Marriot Ridge High School and Poolesville High School for the semi-finals. If the team makes it to the finals, it will compete at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and have its program run on the international space station in January.
