Event description

Description

Please join us for the University of Sydney's Zero Robotics Championship Event hosted by the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies.

Watch our Australian high school finalists compete in a live championship aboard the International Space Station (ISS), as an astronaut conducts the competition in microgravity. The astronauts will be setting up NASA research robots to be controlled by code written by the Australian high school teams.

Before the ISS live stream begins, you will have the opportunity to engage in a range of interactive displays and interesting activities, and hear from some eminent space industry speakers. We are pleased to annouce that Dr Karl Kruszelnicki will be speaking as well as being our the MC of the evening. Refreshments (including coffee and tea) will be provided throughout the event.

We look forward to welcoming you on campus!
