Team will use aluminum scrap and its kit of parts to help build a 120-pound robot.

Contributed by Gershow Recycling.

For the fourth year in a row, Gershow Recycling opened its Medford facility to local high school robotics teams participating in the School-Business Partnerships of Long Island’s (SBPLI) upcoming Long Island FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition to receive free aluminum scrap. Patchogue-Medford was one of 12 Long Island high school robotics teams that took advantage of the program and visited Gershow on January 19.

Members of the Patchogue-Medford robotics team will use the aluminum scrap and its kit of parts to help them build a 120-pound robot. They will have six weeks to construct the robot and prepare for the upcoming competition. The Patchogue-Medford High School robotics team thanked Gershow for its support.

This type of collaboration between buissness and school is what is desperately needed . Thanks to Team 329 & Gershow Recycling for being and proving that they are the best of the best.
