I want to thank the coaches and students from the High School of Computers and Technology, Lehman High School, Stuyvesant High School, and MS 217Q for making today's FIRST event in Sony Plaza Atrium so successful.
There were many adults and children visiting the Sony Wonder Technology Lab who had a wonderful opportunity to see what FIRST is about.
Cindy Hsu, anchor of WCBS-TV, spent a lot of time interviewing students and coaches while learning about FIRST.
In addition she accepted my invitation to attend next year's NYC FIRST Regional at the Javits Center.
Dr. Ryoji Chubach (Sony President and Electronics CEO) stopped by to talk with the coaches and students. He even had time to drive some of the robots.
