Troy Community Enjoys a Fun, Family Coding Night
Students, staff, and families spent the evening participating in a variety of fun coding activites at Troy School. These activities allow the students to practice writing a series of codes that then make their robots perform the directions. We had simple ones such as BeeBots and others involving more complicated coding such as Lego Mindstorms. The book fair was also open and yummy popcorn and juice was provided. It was a fun night for all who attended.
