THANK YOU FIRST Community FOR recognizing our accomplishments

This award isn't about our robot, it's about our team giving back to our community. We can't even say how proud we are to have gotten this award. Watch our 2016 video submission.

We are a high school robotics team from Queens Vocational and Technical High School located in Long Island City, New York.
