After 3 years of moving in between schools in order to prepare for our FIRST Robotics Competition, as well as having to go outside to cut metals and wood, we finally have our own lab!
The idea of having our own lab has always been on our mind, we transformed our dreams into reality when we won the 2016 NYC All Star Rookie Award. We want to give a special thanks to Queens Vocational And Technical High School for letting us reside and use their materials in order to prepare for our FIRST Robotics Competition. We would also like to thank the NYC Board of Education for helping us achieve this wonderful lab.
Our team is very excited with the new lab they have received, here is one of the many reactions.
Agustin Romero: “Its hard to believe, that from the beginning we had nothing and progressed to something we dreamed of. I am very proud of what we have become.”

A little less than a week ago we watched the seniors of our team cross the stage and become high school graduates. When the season began we would all joke about winning the regional and attending champs this year. We all hoped to end this season with a bang for our seniors to be able to say that they walked away with a victory. That joke soon became our reality and we could not be more proud. Thank you seniors for all the work you put into our team, you all continued to go above and beyond. Due to the long hours required we became a family and while it is sad that some will be moving on we wish them all nothing but the best. Here are their plans for this coming up year:
- Darleane Torres will be attending Hampshire College in Massachusetts to study Technology and Business.
- Aminah Ashrafi will begin a paid internship with FIRST Robotics.
- Cristy Galarza will be attending Medaille College up in Buffalo New York to study Vet Tech.
- Tyreee Coger will be attending Baruch College to study Computer Information Systems.
- Henry Zapata will be attending John Jay College of Criminal Justice to study Forensic Psychology.
- Theodore Perry will be attending Morrisville State College.
