Morris High School's Robotics Team Sponsored by The Yankees!
Recently the Morris High School (Bronx, New York) FIRST Robotics Team had the opportunity to show off the team's robot. "2Trainrobotics" (the only New York Team) and four other top teams from New Jersey were invited to the 2007 Gadgetoff event Liberty Science Center in New Jersey. You can view their robot in action at Liberty Science Center below.

Dean Kamen founder of FIRST Robotics came over to thank the team for making the trip from the Bronx. In addition, he told the team that when he was in Washington D.C. recently he met with a person who has agreed to help pitch FIRST Robotics to Major League Baseball. Dean said that he told this lobbyist that the Morris team was already partnered with the NY Yankees. With over 1,500 high school robotics teams throughout the world the Morris team is the only robotics team sponsored by a Major League Baseball team.
