Newtown High School is an urban public school located in Elmhurst Queens. Since 1897 the school has been open to those whom are determined and wish to learn, innovate and create. The Newtown Technotics, whom have participated in the FIRST Robotics competition for the last ten years, are an example of this. This group of teens incorporate the ideals and principles of the school every day. They are eager to learn more about what it is they specialize in whether it be electrical work, mechanical, programming or design. These team members go out of their ways not only to learn more about their specialized subject but to go beyond that and learn other skills. These individuals seek to innovate. They look for the “Next Big Thing” and are in the search to find something revolutionary. The Technotics brainstorm ideas to one another, working together in order to invent what best they can. These Newtown teens create beyond set limits. They create a design, they construct the final product but most importantly they create strong ties. Despite the fact that we come from many different countries and speak various languages, we come together to achieve greatness under the common love for science and technology. This love transcends into the several awards we have received in these past 10 years.
