GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- This evening, the Greenburgh Town Board will hear from 3rd graders at Highview Elementary School who are working on a project aimed at increasing student knowledge of technology and robotics. The board will also listen to members of the Ardsley Robotics Team, all 10th and 11th graders, at Greenburgh Town Hall.
Students at Highview Elementary School used computer coding skills, trial and error, critical thinking, and math skills to work as teams to program two little blue robots named Dot and Dash. The students had to send commands to Dot and Dash in order to move them, light them up, and then have them detect the world around them using free coding applications on an iPad.
The robot presentations will take place immediately after the swearing in ceremonies of Council members Kevin Morgan, Ken Jones and Town Clerk Judith Beville. Town board meeting are meetings are streamed live on the town website and will be aired on local public access TV. The Town Board meeting will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 27 at 7:30 p.m. at Greenburgh Town Hall.
