Altice USA Employees volunteer at FIRST Robotics Competitions
Altice USA is committed to connecting the next generation of innovators to the real-world application of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Through Altice Connects, nearly 70 employees volunteered their time as part of the company’s sponsorship of FIRST Robotics Regional Competitions in Lubbock, Texas and Long Island, NY.
Over 100 high schools competed in the two events, where teams had 6 weeks to build a robot that could perform a list of tasks. The teams were paired up in alliances and worked together to score as many points as they could against other teams. Altice employee volunteers were assigned a variety of roles, from robot inspectors to crowd control to field repair and reset.
