For the eleventh 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 Long Island Regional FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition to receive free aluminum scrap. Half Hollow Hills High School was one of eight high school robotics teams that took advantage of the program and visited Gershow on December 14.
Members of the Half Hollow Hills High School robotics team (as well as the robotics teams from Hauppauge High School, Kings Park High School, North Shore High School, Patchogue-Medford High School, Plainview-Old Bethpage High School, Southold High School, and Westhampton Beach High School) 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.
Gershow has nine locations in Brooklyn, New Hyde Park, Valley Stream, Freeport, Lindenhurst, Huntington Station, Bay Shore, Medford and Riverhead. For more information, call (631) 289-6188 or visit www.gershow.com.
