On Sunday, February 17, 2019, the Bethpage High School Robotics Team, Regal Eagles, FIRST Robotics Competition Team #2869, hosted their second annual Week 0 Event.  A Week 0 Event allows teams from across our region to come together for calibration and practice matches in order to get a sense of how each team's robot will perform during upcoming regionals, but before each team's mandatory "stop build" deadline on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 at 11:59 PM EST.  The Regal Eagles hosted ten other robotics teams from the region in their event in the Bethpage High School Gymnasium that featured a robotics field built to the same dimensions as what each team will face during their regional competition challenge called "Deep Space".

Special thanks to the Regal Eagles, team advisors, Dr. Kay and Mr. LaSpina, the army of parents/guardians for their donations of food, beverages, basket raffle items, assistance with construction and field setup/breakdown and time, the custodial engineers, facilities/maintenance staff, technicians, and volunteers.  Also, the district thanks FIRST Long Island (also known as the School Business Partnerships of Long Island) for their continued support of the Regal Eagles and all robotics teams and programs across Long Island and Mackenzie Pech, Bethpage Schools alumnus and former Regal Eagles captain, who served as game announcer throughout the day!

The Regal Eagles will participate in their first regional event at the School Business Partnerships of Long Island Regional at Hofstra University on March 26, 2019 and March 27, 2019.  They will also participate at the New York City Regional on April 5, 2019, April 6, 2019, and April 7, 2019 at the Armory.
