2018 - 4th Place at the ISS-Final
Team’s code was uploaded onto a satellite and compete the final round right inside the International Space Station in January.We had a team of 15 high school students from age 14 to 18 participated in this year competition. Another year of interdisciplinary and system engineering competition involving from computer science deploying Dikjstra Algorithm, Physics, and intensive math work including Quaternions and spatial rotation.

2017Advanced to ISS Semi-Final.
We have a small team this year,14 members, with most are rockies. The team won their way into the 2017 ISS Semi-Final. Team got an opportunity to explore Quaternions and spatial rotation.
2016Won the 2nd Place at the ISS-Final On January 27th, 2017, team Quark Charm won the 2nd Place at the ISS-Final. The 1st Place was won by an alliance team named “SpaceLinguine” formed by two Italy teams and one US-Arizona team. There were over 150 teams participating in the 2016 competition. It includes about 80s teams from United States, and about 70s teams from foreign countries, such as Russia, Australia, Japan, etc.

Our Past Participation
2015Advanced to ISS Semi-Final.
We have over-whelming number of participants this term - 22 members. Our new 22 members team won their way into the 2015 ISS Semi-Final. At our ISS-Final, we scored just one rank shy away advancing the ISS Final. Nevertheless, it is rewarding learning experience for everyone.
2014Won the highest score at the ISS-Final Round Robin Simulation
Congratulations on our alliance team at the ZR ISS finals! Our alliance team's code achieved the highest score at Round Robin Simulation. As always, the most important aspect is serious learning and fun always going together. Awesome experience!
