High School Robotics Teams Receive
Aluminum Scrap from Gershow

 

On January 18, Gershow Recycling invited local high school robotics teams to its Medford facility to receive free aluminum scrap to help construct their robots to be used at School-Business Partnerships of Long Island’s FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition. Eight teams took advantage of the program and visited Gershow that day: Half Hollow Hills West, Hauppauge, Longwood, North Shore, Northport, Plainview-Old Bethpage, Sachem and Westhampton Beach.

Members of the robotics teams used the aluminum scrap and their kits of parts to help them build a 120-pound robot. They had six weeks to construct the robot and prepare for the competition. The robotics teams thanked Gershow for its support.
