Anthony Santino's letter to the editor: East Rockaway, Lynbrook robotics


Excelling at robotics

To the Editor:

Congratulations are in order for both Lynbrook and East Rockaway’s children who competed and won in different robotics competitions over the past few weeks. Their top prizes reflect a well-rounded education they are receiving in a STEM curriculum from teachers.

Lynbrook robotics team ‘Ctrl Alt Win’ finished first out of four Lynbrook and 23 other school teams at Long Island’s FIRST Tech Challenge qualifier tournament. East Rockaway Middle School’s Elizabeth Son and Daniel Ricci also captured first place in the VEX IQ teamwork robotics challenge. Both are remarkable accomplishments and speak volumes about engineering aptitudes!

Educators and parents should be very proud of these stellar results. It shows that our learners are taking the reins to excel in robotics and technology: two disciplines that will only grow as we head into the future. Our students are the pride of the community and deserve to be recognized for these achievements! Congratulations again.


Supervisor, Town of Hempstead
