Vraj Patel, Ana Simonini, Simone LeClercq, Brielle Bamberry, Julia Kiernan and Angelina Periera took part in the 75th Annual Model Legislature at the RI State House. Working with students across the state, and often working in bipartisan fashion, our students reminded us that when it comes to discussing politics, adults can learn a lot about civility and respect from teens. Congratulations on a job well done!

Students in Robotics I are learning all about autonomous vehicles. They are tasked with coding a color sensor to reflect a value in which they will use to find the center black line. From there, students will decide how best to control each of their two motors in order to get the fastest time possible without going off track. Students are exposed to how robots and autonomous vehicles use sensors and actuators to learn, understand and interact with the world around them. Next project they will add an ultrasonic sensor to avoid potential collisions with various obstacles.
