Students of Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District’s John F. Kennedy High School Robotics Club, known as the POBots, recently participated in the elite New York City First Robotics Competition regional. The POBots gave an impressive showcase, advancing all the way to the semi-finals from an entry pool of over 60 teams. In addition to their distinguished demonstration, the POBots earned the Judges Award for their exceptional community outreach activities, including raising over $1,400 for Hurricane Sandy Victims. The POBots are gearing up to compete again at the SBPLI Hofstra Regional this month, where they expect to contend for numerous awards.
