LI FIRST Robotics Competition Kicks Off to a Great Start

Connetquot is a rookie team, so this will be their first LI Regional FIRST Robotics Competition. Members of the Connetquot robotics team are pictured displaying the contents of the kit of parts with their mentor.

Connetquot High School, Comsewogue High School, Plainedge High School, Bethpage High School, and Aviation High School in Long Island City began the season with a strong presence at this year's Kickoff for 2010 FIRST Robotics Competition. They gathered with more than 30 participating Long Island high schools on Saturday January 9 at Stony Brook University for a presentation and simulcast broadcast from New Hampshire. After the presentation, each team received a kit of parts to help them build a 130-pound robot. The teams will have six weeks to construct the robot and prepare for the upcoming competition to be held on March 25-27 at Hofstra University
