Center Moriches High School Robotics TeamAs sponsors of the Center Moriches High School Robotics Team, Biodex was proud to host the group at their Shirley, New York headquarters to get a demonstration of their latest robotic creation. Students enjoyed a captive audience for their robot demonstration and a tour of the facility.

As four-year sponsors of the team, Biodex has seen it grow from a handful of members to a diverse clan of around forty students. Each year the team competes in the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition, a national program that challenges teams of students and their mentors to design and build a 130-pound robot in six weeks under specified guidelines. >>
