Well, as a rookie team, we think this is quite an accomplishment. Newsday is the official newspaper for Long Island.
Here is the link to the article online, although they dont have the picture there…
For those of you on Long Island, the print article is in the “LI Life” section, the Islip edition
gets super-psyched for LI Regional this week
Ok here is the picture they used…not the best in the world… I think this is week 3??

Forbes is writing an article about our school. Because at our school robotics is the coolist thing there, the article is going to be centered around us. The writer and editor went to some of our design presentations to see what we are like. As a result of the article, some of our members are going to appear on CNN!!! We hope this will bring us sponcers, but you never know.
Our Newsday article is now featured on the USFIRST WEBSITE!!
# made it into newsday too!!! look on the bottom of page A26 in today’s (3-17-02) newsday. 271
Yep, I saw that too
Seems like FIRST is getting bigger and bigger news coverage each year. I know last year Newsday just had a little blurb after the competition with a picture…
And we were on 25 (Telecare) and 55 too. And then News 12 did a 1:30 clip as opposed to about 30s last year, and Fox 5 did like a 3:00 clip…pretty cool
