Gershow Recycling Donates Aluminum Scrap To Half Hollow Hills High School Robotics Team
For the tenth year in a row, Gershow Recycling opened its Medford facility to local high school robotics teams participating in School-Business Partnerships of Long Island’s (SBPLI) upcoming FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition Long Island Regional to receive free aluminum scrap. Half Hollow Hills High School was one of seven high school robotics teams that took advantage of the program and visited Gershow on December 8.
Members of the Half Hollow Hills High School robotics team will use the aluminum scrap and their kit of parts to help them build a 120-pound robot. They will have six weeks to construct the robot and prepare for the upcoming competition. The Half Hollow Hills High School robotics team thanked Gershow for its support.
