It was another first for the East Rockaway School District, as they hosted one of the largest middle school VEX IQ robotics competitions in the area on Feb. 11 at East Rockaway Junior-Senior High School. The event included teams from across Long Island, as well as students from Westchester and New Jersey.

The East Rockaway Middle School Team 443D, consisting of Brian Cooney, Aadil Khan, Oscar Lemus, Jason Miller and Elliot Reyes, took first place in the STEM Project research award, placed fourth in teamwork and sixth in driver skills among the 37 competing teams. Three East Rockaway High School teams have qualified for the Southern New York State Championships to be held at Berner Middle School in Massapequa on March 4. Good luck to all teams!
