Turning a plastic coke bottle into a a house planter is pretty smart recycling, but taking scrap metal and building a robot is positively 21st century.

For the fifth year in a row, the folks at Gershow Recycling opened its Medford facility to local high school 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 to receive free aluminum scrap. 

Hauppauge was one of eight Long Island high school robotics teams that took advantage of the program and visited Gershow on January 18.

Members of the Hauppauge robotics team will use the aluminum scrap and its 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
