School may be out for summer vacation, but that didn’t stop a dedicated group of Peekskill High School Robotics students from showing up to their classroom to build and program their own drones. From June 23 until July 7, students from both PHS’ Robotics and Advanced Robotics classes met with PHS Robotics Teacher Mr. Carlo Vindrini from 7:15 a.m. – 1 p.m. every day.
