Science club builds robot

On Jan. 26, the Roxboro Community School (RCS) Varsity Science Club Robotics team finished their first working robot known as the Clawbot. The bot construction was led by Sydney Fryman, Taylor Anderson, Reagan Anderson, and Alex Adkins.

Fryman joined Science Club hoping to start building prosthetics with the medical team, however, Mike Czysz, club advisor, suggested that she work with the Robotics kit instead. After beginning the project, she was able to order a bigger and better kit thanks to the donations of Mary Alice Wildman, Czysz’s mother-in-law.

“Our next step is the advanced clawbot, which is two times as big and as useful. I also am working to make it a remote wireless,” said Fryman. She continued that their work was “far from over.”

RCS comes to the aid of sister charter school

Roxboro Community School (RCS) students and faculty collected donations for a sister charter school affected by the flooding following Hurricane Matthew, which affected North Carolina in early October.

For two weeks, RCS students and faculty gathered donations of water and pet food for Southeastern Academy Charter School (SEA). A special jeans day raised over $800 to purchase more water, and a local business owner chipped in more money when he learned of the effort. Nearly 500 cases of water and around 20 bags of pet food were delivered to the students and staff at the school.
SEA is a K-8 charter school located in Lumberton, N.C. Two hundred and ten students are enrolled at SEA.
