Take A Journey To Space!

Zero Gravity is a feature documentary that follows a diverse group of middle-school students from San Jose, CA, who compete in a nationwide tournament to code satellites aboard the International Space Station.

Seen through the wondrous eyes of three young students and their first-time coach, they each take an intimate and personal journey to space as their team grows from amateur coders to representing California in the ISS Finals Tournament — the culmination of a summer-long adventure that sees their incredible accomplishment performed by astronauts in orbit.

“Campbell Middle School’s innovative Zero Robotics program gets thrust in the spotlight in director Thomas Verrette’s inspirational documentary, filmed primarily in the South Bay. Verrette takes a “Spellbound”-like approach, focusing primarily on three students, Adrien Engelder, Advik Gonugunta and Carol Gonzalez as they participate in Tanner Marcoida’s class. 

The goal is to create code that will program satellites, and then participate in a NASA-sponsored competition where astronauts will put the programs to the test. Verrette’s mission isn’t limited to outer-space pursuits, and he carves out time to meet the parents and to reflect on the Bay Area’s diversity and the challenges that immigrants trying to make a living encounter here. It’s a winner.”
