ZR1a

Zero Robotics

STS has a middle school Zero Robotics (ZR) team. In ZR, students create, edit, save, and simulate projects online in a system created and sponsored by MIT. They use a graphical editor to write code, then simulate their programs immediately and see the results using a simulation. Student participants compete to win a technically challenging game by programming their strategies into the system. In 2015, STS ZR helped bring home the national championship to the Massachusetts teams.
