Plainedge High School Wins Musical Theme Contest
Will Recce, Principal, School Construction Consultants, Inc. and Board Member, School-Business Partnerships of Long Island, Inc. (SBPLI), announced that the Plainedge High School Robotics Team #527 was the winner of this year’s musical theme contest. The song, titled “Ignition,” will be used at SBPLI’s 2014 Long Island Regional FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition in Science and Technology) Robotics Competition (FRC), which will take place March 27-29 at Hofstra University. The presentation was held at the FRC kickoff event at Stony Brook University’s Jacob Javits Lecture Center on January 4.
There were 17 entries submitted by 12 different schools. Other teams included Bay Shore High School, Plainview-Old Bethpage High School, Hauppauge High School, Smithtown High School, Walt Whitman High School, Copiague High School, Sayville High School, Wheatley High School, Half Hollow Hills High School West, North Shore High School, and Center Moriches High School. Some teams had multiple entries.
Students worked with their mentors on the robotics team, and even with staff members of the high school’s music department to compose their song. The winning entry was then chosen by the members of SBPLI’s Development Council. The Plainedge High School robotics team will be presented with a $1,000 check at this year’s Long Island Regional FRC.
Congratulations to The Plainedge High School Robotics Team
