While it’s true today’s 11-year-olds will one day run the world, middle schoolers in San Jose, California are taking their summer break to get a head start. Immersed in their own space race, a group of ambitious students enter the Zero Robotics ISS (International Space Station) Competition. Their mission: compete with teams across the country to write the most strategic code for surveying satellites, known as SPHERES. These satellites will help map out a GPS system to successfully orbit Mars, opening the door to infinite opportunities and exploration of the Red Planet. Led and coached by Tanner (Campbell Middle School’s after-school instructor) each coder-in-the-making brings their own strengths, unique perspectives, and boundless curiosity to their team. They arrive with the hopes their programming strategy will soon be hard at work discovering other-worldly frontiers. Featuring astronauts Jack Fischer, Cady Coleman, and Steve Smith, ZERO GRAVITY highlights the importance of empowering the next generation of scientists, engineers, and innovators who will fearlessly lead us into the future—even the unknown. —A.B.
