RoboHawks are Going International!

Heschel's FEIT Electric sponsored Robotics team, the RoboHawks, participates in the VEX IQ Robotics League and the FIRST LEGO League. At the FIRST LEGO League 2018 Los Angeles Championship tournament, the team earned first place for their project presentation.  Judging was based on the exhibition of  core values, robot challenge, and research and presentation of an innovative solution to issues associated with extended space travel. The project, a portable light therapy cap to realign the diurnal cycle for people who have alternative work shifts, including the astronauts aboard the International Space Station, who experience a sunrise and sunset every 90 minutes as the space craft orbits the Earth, has now attained a patent pending status. As a result of the first place standing at the competition and the project itself, Heschel is thrilled to be one of four teams from the United States given the unique opportunity to join 50 teams from all over the world competing this spring at an international competition in Uruguay.
