To support 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, Gershow Recycling invited teams to its Medford facility to receive free aluminum scrap. Connetquot, Deer Park, Baldwin, Great Neck South, Wheatley, Freeport, Oceanside, Hauppauge, and Longwood were the nine Long Island high school robotics teams that took advantage of the program and visited Gershow on January 22.

Members of the robotics teams will use the aluminum scrap and its kit of parts to help them build a 130-pound robot. They will have six weeks to construct the robot and prepare for the upcoming competition. The high school robotics teams thanked Gershow for its support.
