Students at the Hilton Head Island Boys and Girls Club are assembling and programming robots, part of a new educational program called Robotech.

“This program will help our members learn how to build robots, understand programming and begin thinking about how important technology is in their life,” said teacher Abi Fidler, club director of technology services.
