  New York Congressman Paul Tonko has unveiled legislation designed to introduce and strengthen engineering programs at schools across the country. 

Tonko, a New York Democrat, visited with school officials and students with the Ballston Spa High School Robotics team Monday.

The students were working together as part of a summer camp activity to program small robots to perform simple tasks such as following a line on the floor or moving around the perimeter of a table.
