The hardworking robotics team Harborfield Tornadoes Lego Robotics team from Oldfield Middle School came home from the FIRST Lego League Long Island Championship Tournament as winners of the prestigious Innovation Project award. This honor recognizes the team that utilizes diverse resources for their Innovation Project to help them gain a comprehensive understanding of their problem; has a creative, well-researched solution; and effectively communicates their findings to judges and the community.

The eight-member Oldfields squad consists of dedicated robotics students Neela Bajon, Quintin Briggs, Chase Ciccone, Tanner Facella, Andrew Hollweg, Dylan Lakhani, Alexander Prudente and Imran Shah.

“Our students put in so much time and effort on all the ‘little things’ that really made a difference at the competition,” adviser James Temps said. “They had to make a professional presentation in front of independent judges explaining the idea of their own creation and describe the benefits this invention would have for the people it was designed for. They all had to contribute in some way and did so without hesitation. We couldn’t have been prouder of them.”
