Whitman’s Robotics Team Earns 2nd Place at STEM Summit
At today’s STEM Diversity Summit held at Farmingdale University, Walt Whitman’s High School Robotics team made one of the afternoons presentations and then went on to take a solid 2nd place out of the many high schools present. Their presentation showcased a FIRST robot, able to shoot baskets and cross bridges. This all-day summit sponsored by Farmingdale University is working to connect K-12 students with higher education, the community, and the workforce through Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
