NORTH SALEM, N.Y. -- The members of the North Salem Middle School Robotics/Coding Club are building their own robots this year.
Cynthia Sandler, who co-advises the club with Gary Green, said that the students felt inspired by the North Salem High School robotics team, the Tech Wise-Guys. Sandler explained “Last year, we focused on coding through programs such as Code.org, Codeacademy, CS First and Scratch. Then we dabbled with robotics and found that students were really excited about the idea of building robots and programming them.”
The students use the VEX Robotics program in writing code for their robots.
The students are in small groups, working through the instructions so they can build their robots.
