This is formed by a small group of highly selective Computer Science and Robotic Engineering high school enthusiasts from Storming Robots. They got together to create not only software engineering projects with new ideas, but also learning opportunties to enhance others' strength in STEM.
Most of the development will be focusing on the Webots™ Robot Simulator. What is Webots™? Webots is a sophisticated robot simulator which has been designed mainly for professional use in industry, education, and research. It requires programming experience usually in university and professional levels.

At SR, we continuously cultivate students' love in creating ideas and take on challenge outside their comfort zone taking ownership of their own learning, being engulfed with the enthusiasm for ways to not only develop their own strengths, but also leverage their new-found knowledge through helping others.
I am a senior at the Watchung Hills High School. Ever since I was around 4th-5th grade, I have loved tinkering robotics. Attending one summer workshop at SR in my 6th grade got me really hooked! Not only with robotics, but with computer science. Since my 9th grade, I have started to self-teach machine learning algorithms, and continued tinkering at home. Besides this Google-Blockly development, another latest project is on my new-found knowledge in TCP/IP networking. After the final release of this Google-Blockly IDE development, I will continue working on enhancement, and also on a remote TCP/IP layer for the Robocup Junior to allow RCJ Maze Simulation teams to interface between Webots™ server remotely.
I have always enjoyed Ultimate frisbee; and I love my cat Jasper.
I’m a senior at the Pingry School. I became drawn to programming since my very class at Storming Robots in 4th grade. I’m interested in autonomous robotics as well as algorithm development, and I’ve also become increasingly intrigued by the intersection between programming and various disciplines in both STEM and the Humanities. My research paper on a new data clustering algorithm, illustrated with generative art , was recently published in the peer-reviewed journal Pattern Recognition.
Beyond programming, I’m always looking to share programming with others through teaching and mentoring younger students. I also enjoy cross country running and taiko drumming.
Brief highlight of their background:
- Side by side converted Python and C/++ code will be available in the later release.
- Async robust motor functions will also be available in the later release.More robust control blocks to allow more efficient logic design, such as state machine with switch/case.
- Add in object angle function for the Cam.
This simulates the competitive environment called Robocup Junior Rescue Line competition (for pre-college). It aims to excite students to participate in robotics programming and software engineering. Webots™ simulation environment is designed for industrial and research usage. Our Development group aims to create an envronment easier to adapt for the less experienced.
Reminder: there are a few simple sample worlds and controllers in the installation. Do check back to this site later for more up-to-date information. There will be a (minors-safe) discussion forum available soon.
