FESTO Corporation Provides Tubing for Teams Participating in Upcoming Long Island Regional FIRST® Robotics Competition
On December 22, 2014, School-Business Partnerships of Long Island, Inc. (SBPLI) received 40 boxes of tubing from FESTO Corporation in Hauppauge to be given to local robotics teams that will be taking part in SBPLI’s Long Island Regional FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition, which will be held March 26-28 at Hofstra University’s David S. Mack Sports & Exhibition Complex. The tubing will be used for the robots’ pneumatics systems.
FESTO Corporation has been a major sponsor of SBPLI and its FIRST® robotics programs for many years. In 2013, the company hosted a Facebook photo contest in which the winning robotics team had the chance to tour its facilities.
