The Hampton Bays Robotics team has gotten off to a prosperous year with a $6,500 grant from the National Aeronautics and Space Agency. The NASA grants are awarded to rookie and veteran teams who will be participating in the For Inspiration and Recognition in Science and Technology (FIRST) regional competition.  This year’s competition will take place on March 24-26, 2011 at Hofstra University. Congratulations to the Baybots and their advisors, Matt Balistreri and Ed Baumann.
