A lot of thanks to Matthew Goldman who taught both the Symmetrical Turtles and the Pi^3, while he himself is also one of the main developer of the awesome (complex) robosoccer game. He is currently attending 10th Grade at the Bernardsville High School.
There are simply too many impressive and inspiring stories to be covered here to tell how much effort and wonderful work these children have contributed and gained from this year experience. Bravo! Everyone!

ZeroRoboticsThis competition is for Grade 9-12 students. This is from the SPHERES-ZERO-Robotics program run by the MIT and NASA. SPHERES stands for the Synchronized Position Hold, Engage, Reorient, Experimental Satellites. Students write algorithms for the SPHERES satellites to accomplish tasks relevant to future space missions. The algorithms will be tested by the SPHERES teams. The best designs will be selected and the teams will travel to MIT for the final competition to operate the SPHERES satellites on board the ISS.
