Stewart Manor School’s Lego Robotics team compete at L.I. Championship


Stewart Manor School’s Lego Robotics team had a successful season, participating in both the FIRST Lego League Challenge’s FIRST Long Island Qualifier in January and the FIRST Long Island Championship on March 10.

The team participated in the MASTERPIECE challenge, tasked with imagining and innovating new ways to create and communicate art across the globe.

Students in fourth, fifth and sixth grade comprised the team, which underwent an application process. Under the guidance of advisers Parveen Rampal and James Ristano, the students created a virtual museum.

At the qualifier event in January, the team received the Champion’s Award for their design, as well as the opportunity to advance to the championship round. They were once again victorious, as they were recognized as the FIRST Finalist for the Innovation Project Award at the championship in March.

This is the second year of the Lego Robotics team at Stewart Manor School.
