BONNERS FERRY, Idaho.—A small group of students at Bonner’s Ferry High School are building robots and using them in the classroom.

The robots allow the Absolute Zero science club to build machines and even design computer code used by the International Space Station.

Their work was recently put to the test at MIT, where members of the club pitted their code against other schools across the nation.  The codes were used by astronauts at the ISS.

Their teacher, Ed Katz, says the group is gaining experience not many students get to have.
