Spencer Creveling '20: How did you become interested in robotics and coding? "I first got interested in coding during the nationwide Hour of Code back in fifth grade. As a young kid, I loved creating things, and seeing the limitless potential that coding provided really clicked with me. I went on to teach myself HTML, basic Java and Python, and I just completed my AP Computer Programming (Java) course this year. As for robotics, I dabbled in it in sixth grade during my STEM class. However, I never thought I would be able to join a team until my friend and the leader of the club asked me to join to lead the coding team." Read Spencer's full Q&A here.
