The Bridgehampton School District hosted a parent/staff/student/volunteer kick-off dinner to start the Robotics Club competitive season and to honor two community volunteers who have been instrumental in the success of the robotics program - Julie Burmeister and Jonathan Fletcher. Mrs. Burmeister is a former science teacher who has supported the program since its initiation six years ago and Mr. Fletcher, an employee of Liberty Ironworks in Southampton, brings his unparalleled metal fabrication expertise to the program. The two were honored for their countless volunteer hours on weeknights and weekends to mentor Bridgehampton students. The district congratulates all the students involved in the Robotics Club and advisers Ms. Judiann Carmack-Fayyaz and Mr. Luke Ferland as well mentor Mr. Kenneth Giosi. The team will compete in 2020 in the FIRST Robotics International competition in Orlando as well as the at the FIRST Robotics national competition at Hofstra University. Congratulations to all!
