BETHPAGE, N.Y., May 4, 2012 – On May 12, MSG Varsity will air an all-new television special titled Robotics, which will follow three local high school teams as they prepare to compete in the SBPLI Long Island Regional FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). The School-Business Partnerships of Long Island, Inc. (SBPLI) sponsors this event as part of FIRST’s (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) nationwide high school robotics competition. Teams featured in the one-hour special are Team 329 from Patchogue-Medford High School, Team 353 from Plainview-Old Bethpage High School and Rookie Team 4006 from Central Islip High School. The show will air at 5:00 p.m. on May 12th, with encore presentations at 6:00 p.m. and again during primetime at 9:00 p.m. on MSG Varsity Optimum Channel 14.

In Robotics, cameras follow the three Long Island teams throughout the process of building a competition-ready robot for the Long Island Regional Competition which took place at Hofstra University. This year’s competition, entitled “Rebound RumbleSM”, tasked teams to build robots that can score as many basketballs into hoops as possible during a two minute and fifteen second match. The show will conclude with the competition, highlighting how well these three Long Island teams fare against the other 47 high school teams from the region.

“It’s really impressive to witness everything these high school students put into robotics, not to mention what they accomplish,” said Michael Lardner, Senior Vice President and Executive Producer, MSG Varsity. “It’s something we at MSG Varsity are proud to be able to share with our viewers.”

“We are proud to have MSG Varsity take the time to follow the teams and learn about SBPLI’s Long Island Regional FIRST Robotics Competition,” said Hans Zobel, Board Chairman, SBPLI. “MSG Varsity’s participation in our annual event provides greater exposure to SBPLI and also provides a benefit to the younger students who are part of the robotics program. Viewers will have the opportunity to learn about robotics and realize that these students are the workforce of the future.”

In addition to the May 12 airings of Robotics, it will also be available on MSG Varsity On-Demand, Optimum Channel 614.
