(CEDARBURG) - They're the intelligence behind artificial intelligence.   A group of Cedarburg High School students worked on a project that astronauts on board the International Space Station put their hands on. 

The group calls themselves The Spaghetti Code. They spent months working on software as part of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s international Zero Robotics Competition. High school students from schools across the globe compete. The objective is to control robotic spheres aboard the International Space Station from their computers on Earth.

At a gathering at MIT at the end of January, the Cedarburg team completed their objective earning them a spot among the competition’s champions.
