At last night’s Town Board meeting Board members heard presentations from 3rd grader’s at Highview School (part of the Greenburgh Central school district). They discussed the interactions they have with robots and provided Town Board members with a demonstration. Ardsley High School Robotics Club also made a presentation to the Town Board. These students are going to have a head start over other students. They are learning coding, robotics, computer programming and will be in line for terrific jobs when they complete school because  they will have so much experience.  Major companies are looking to hire trained coder’s. Our schools are preparing students at a young age for the jobs needed tomorrow!
